The cultural phenomenon of the World’s Fair began in 1851 with the Great Exhibition in London and the events became ever more spectacular: ‘urban centres were re-planned to accommodate them, national economies damaged, fortunes made and international hostilities postponed’. This richly illustrated volume describes more than 40 fairs and expositions as it traces the history of these great staged events of which nothing remains save a few iconic structures such as the Eiffel Tower or the Atomium in Brussels.
