    schema:description "This detailed study not only examines the dominions' attempts to meet the daunting challenges of the post-war world, but also the political manoeuvres and economic initiatives which formed the basis of a new period in Anglo-dominion relations. Soldier settlement was seen as the economic cornerstone of a new and dynamic post-war society. The participation of British veterans provided the foundation for the more ambitious empire migration strategy developed by the imperial architect, Leo Amery."@en ;
    schema:description "Drawing together previously untapped primary sources, this study explores important social and economic aspects of the transition of Anglo-dominion relations between the onset of World War I and the beginning of the Great Depression. This book will be essential reading for both specialist and undergraduates studying the history of the British Empire, in particular Anglo-dominion relations."@en ;
