    schema:description "The twelve essays in this book, written by emergent young scholars as well as established names in the field, explore in depth for the first time the publishing and reading practices which were formed and changed by the First World War. Ranging from an exploration of British and Australian trench journals and the reading practices of Indian soldiers to the impact of war on the literary figures of the home front in Britain, these essays provide crucial new historical information about the production, circulation and reception of reading matter during a period of international crisis. Meticulously researched and engagingly written, these essays will be rewarding reading for anyone interested in the literature and history of this period. Not only will they make a significant contribution to the specialist fields of literary studies and book history, they will also add new insights to our general understanding of propaganda, of nationalism, and of daily life in a world at war."@en ;
