South West Africa Administration
Its possibilities. Wembley Exhibition 1925
Published: The Administration, Windhoek, 1925
35 pages, illustrations, colour map, folding maps and folding illustrations, pictorial wrappers- paperback with light foxing, a good copy. The British Empire Exhibition, held in 1924 and 1925, at Wembley assembled the member nations of the empire to develop imperial trade connections and to cultivate closer political ties between Britain and her territories. A commercial, educational and imperial spectacle, the exhibition reminded Britons of the material and political value of the empire, as the nation struggled to recover from the economic impact of the Great War. For some colonial participants, however, the British Empire Exhibition enabled them to present a distinct national identity in pursuit of greater autonomy from Britain, while for others, it provided a forum in which to critique racial discrimination within the empire. Overall Condition: A Good Copy Size: 8vo (250 x 190 mm)
