Examining the complex world of print culture in the nineteenth century, Connors and MacDonald show how periodicals in the United Kingdom and British North America shaped and promoted ideals about national identity. The authors’ striking history of an understudied period in the history of print culture sheds light on the underlying myth of British transcendence and progress that emerged with such force and appeal after 1815.
