Royal spectacle : the 1860 visit of the Prince of Wales to Canada and the United States by Ian Walter Radforth( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1860, Queen Victoria sent her eighteen-year-old son, Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, on a goodwill mission to Canada and the United States. The young heir-apparent (later King Edward VII) had not yet gained his reputation as a fashion setter and rake, but he nevertheless attracted enormous crowds both in Canada, where it was the first royal visit, and in the United States. Civic leaders hosted the visitor in princely style, decorating their towns with triumphal arches and organizing royal entries, public processions, openings, and grand balls.In Royal Spectacle, Ian Radforth recreates these displays of civic pride by making use of the many public and private accounts of them, and he analyses the heated controversies the visit provoked. When communities rushed to honour the prince and put themselves on display, social divisions inadvertently became part of the spectacle seen by the prince and described by visiting journalists. Street theatre reached a climax in Kingston, where the Prince of Wales could not disembark from his steamer because of the defiance of thousands of Orangemen dressed in their brilliant regalia and waiving their banners.Contemporary depictions of the tour provide an opportunity to interpret the cultural values and social differences that shaped Canada during the Confederation decade and the United States on the eve of the Civil War. Topics explored include Orange-Green conflict, First Nations and the politics of public display, contested representations of race and gender, the tourist gaze, and meanings of crown and empire. An original and erudite study, Royal Spectacle contributes greatly to historical research on public spectacle, colonial and national identities, Britishness in the Atlantic world, and the history of the monarchy

Royal spectacle : the 1860 visit of the Prince of Wales to Canada and the United States by Ian Walter Radforth( Recording )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Prior to 1860, Canada had never been graced with a visit by British royalty. It was in that year that Queen Victoria sent her 18-year-old son on a state visit to both Canada and the United States; Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, would later be crowned King Edward VII. Drawing upon both public and private accounts of Albert Edward's visit, Radforth (history, U. of Toronto) recreates the princely welcome he received, as well as the controversies the future king's stay incited. The author analyzes such topics as the Orange-Green conflict, the politics of public display, representations of race and gender, and the meanings of empire, thereby investigating the "cultural values and social differences that shaped Canada during the confederation decade and the United States on the eve of Civil War." The book includes useful b & w illustrations from contemporaneous periodicals. Annotation: 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
