9781845113094: Ends of British Imperialism: The Scramble for Empire, Suez, and Decolonization

Pax Britannica to Pax Americana is the story of the British Empire from its late-nineteenth century flowering to its present extinction. Louis traces the British Empire from the scramble for Africa, the turbulent imperial history of the Second World War in Asia, and the mid-20th century rush to independence to the Suez crisis, the icon of empire's end. It forms the ideal platform from which to examine the aims and outcome of empire. This authoritative and highly engaging history appears at a time when interest in the history of the British Empire has, ironically, never been stronger, making Ends of British Imperialism a must-read item for both scholar and general reader.

It brings together the oeuvres of an eminent historian rather than a mere selection of writings. Each article is attractively written as well as thoroughly annotated.” –History Today
