Imagining Home by Wendy Webster
Book DescriptionImagining Home offers a unique examination of ideas and images of home in Britain during a period of national decline and loss of imperial power. In exploring the relationship between gender, 'race' and national identity, it higlights the continuing importance of empire in imaginings of the nation during a period of decolonization. Analyzing the significance of colonialism and racism in shaping ideas of motherhood, employment and domestictiy, it traces the process by which Englishness was increasingly associated with domestic order, and the home and family constructed as white. Drawing extensively on oral history and life-writing, Imagining Home examines the multiple meanings of home to women in narratives of beloning and unbelonging. Its focus on the complex interrelationships of white and black women's lives and identities offers a new perspective on this period.

Englishness and Empire 1939-1965, Paperback (October 2007)
Was the British empire given away in a fit of collective indifference? This work looks at connections between stories of empire told in the media - the Second World War, the Coronation and Everest, colonial wars of the 1950s, immigration, Winston Churchill's funeral - and contributes to debates about the domestic consequences of the end of empire.

This study critically explores the lives of women in Britain during the immediate postwar period 1945-64, and re-examines the current conception of the 1950s as a nadir for women - when the values of domesticity and motherhood were paramount.
