This illustrated account reveals how the exhibition was conceived and planned, why it was a success, what it meant to the millions of visitors, challenges the common view that it symbolised peace, progress, prosperity and the emergence of an industrial middle class, and contributes to our broader understanding of modern national identities.

Very good condition. Some sunning to dust jacket cover.
