Visual Culture and Decolonisation in Britain provides the first in-depth analysis of the place of visual representations within the process of decolonisation during the period 1945 to 1970. The chapters trace the way in which different visual genres art, film, advertising, photography, news reports and ephemera represented and contributed to the political and social struggles over Empire and decolonisation during the mid- twentieth century.
