Exploring 'the way airborne mobility expressed imperialism', Gordon Pirie assembles an unprecedented mass of scattered evidence to examine the social exclusivity of people who used private and commercial aircraft to move around the empire in the decade between 1928 and 1938. He examines the practices that flying imperially created and its significance, not just for the air passengers, but for the colonized people who provided travel assistance on the ground.
