What is the purpose of an edited collection and are they still relevant in today’s publishing climate for historians? I recall discussing this and why it was becoming increasingly difficult to convince publishers of their worth with Professor John M. MacKenzie at the conference Associate Professor Michael J.K. Walsh and I co-organised, ‘The British Empire during the Great War: Colonial Societies/Cultural Responses’, hosted by Nanyang Technological University, 19–22 February 2014. We both agreed as to the importance of the edited volume and indeed Associate Professor Walsh and I co-edited two volumes that emanated from that conference. However, this volume under review is not a good example of this format.
