British Cinema and Middlebrow Culture in the Interwar Years offers an understanding of British Cinema between 1928 and 1939 through the relationship between the British film industry and other 'culture industries' such as the radio, music recording, publishing and early television. This relationship has traditionally been seen as a weakness of the British film-making tradition, but this book stages a re-appraisal of that tradition, arguing that it is part of a specific stratgy of differentiation from Hollywood cinema, designed to appeal to the 'middlebrow' aesthetic of the most rapidly expanding audience of the period-the lower middle class.
