Oxford University Press, 2003 - Всего страниц: 256
John Plunkett presents the first history of the interaction between the monarchy and the media to focus on the reign of Queen Victoria. He argues that the development of popular print and visual media in the nineteenth century helped to reinvent the position of the monarchy in national life, and includes a detailed account of the emergence of royal journalism and the impact of new media such as photography.
