(p.1) Introduction
Patriotism and Propaganda in First World War Britain
Liverpool University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the representation of patriotism in the propaganda of the National War Aims Committee (NWAC) in Great Britain during the First World War. This volume explores the relation between the NWAC's patriotic narrative with the pre-war language and imagery and how the experience of total war affected its presentation. It also evaluates the reception of NWAC propaganda and the role of NWAC in opposing dissent and analyses what the NWAC story suggests about the war's impact on British society and culture.

Keywords:   National War Aims Committee, propaganda, patriotism, Great Britain, First World War, patriotic narrative, pre-war imagery, British culture, British society, dissent
