Ok so, I’ve been a little quiet. I’ve finished my current project, but still haven’t clicked ‘publish’. I haven’t been networking as much. I haven’t been writing as much.
With a upcoming holiday, my publishing plans have been put on hold until after I return.
But what does this mean for the present?
It means I can formally announce the future publication date of my non-fiction book A Show Called Empire: The History of the British Empire According to the Movies.
“They say a picture paints a thousand words. What picture does a movie paint?
From pith helmets to scarlet jackets, to tiger hunting and cigars and brandy, to the darker side of Empire, with its imperialism, its paternalism and bald faced racism, the story of the British Empire has many chapters. Chapters which have been immortalised by film-makers across the globe. So how do these films represent the British Empire in all its vastness?
Including discussions of well-known – and lesser-known – movies spanning from the 1940s to the present day, it details the pictures painted of the empire and the awakenings of burgeoning nationalities. It contains glimpses into the changing societies as time progressed from the final days of the empire and how this has affected the movie world and how it perceives and portrays the British Empire, the rulers and those they ruled over.”
I am pleased to announce that A Show Called Empire: The History of the British Empire According to the Movies, will be published and available from August 1st 2016.
