Abstract:This article looks at the extent to which newspapers existed and developed in the British Empire, particularly in South Africa and India. It looks at the relative size of the imperial press in relation to other European empires. It discusses the different forms the colonial press took: the settler press, the vernacular press and the missionary press. The article also looks at the developments which assisted the growth of colonial newspapers, such as the expansion of the telegraph system. The problems facing colonial newspapers are discussed as well as the issue of colonial press freedom. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
