Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Seminar Studies in History series is a study tool which bridges the gap between textbook and specialist survey. This series of short paperback books provide readers with a comprehensive range of material covering British, European and Russian history, from the Medieval period through to the 20th century.

Each book consists of a brief "Introduction" and/or "Background" to the subject, valuable in bringing the reader up-to-speed on the area being examined, followed by a substantial and authoritative section of "Analysis" focusing on the main themes and issues. There is a succinct "Assessment" of the subject, a generous selection of "Documents" and a detailed bibliography.

The series is growing and evolving, with new several new titles and new editions, updated with current research, published each year.

White examines British decolonization since 1945 and explores, among other topics, India, the movement of Britain toward the EEC, her special relationship with the USA, changing colonial societies and populists nationalism, as well as the changes decolonization brought about in international relations, including a specific chapter devoted to the Suez crisis of 1956.

Synopsis:

Outlining key debates on British decolonization, this text provides syntheses of historical debates on the demise of British imperial power. Included is a brief description of the British Empire up to 1945, and a chapter focusing on the Suez Crisis.

Synopsis:

Concise and accessible, this guide provides an overview of the process of British decolonisation. Dr White syntheses recent historical debate by looking at the demise of British imperial power from three main perspectives: the shifting emphases of British imperial policy; the rise of populist, colonial nationalism, and the international political, strategic, and economic environment dominated by the USA and the USSR. The book also positions the British experience within the context of European decolonisation and contains many documents which have only recently become available. Introducing the reader to the key debates it the ideal introductory text on the subject.
