Book Description

16 April 1999 Seminar Studies In History
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect help for last minute essays 8 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Although scholarly in tone this is quite an interesting read all the same. Covering the post-war decolonisation in a rather brisk manner it is very readable for a seminar study book.
The negative side to this easy read is that it really isn't quite comprehensive enough. Some of the former colonies recieve few mentions whenever they don't coincide with the auhors intention to find similar traits in the worldwide movements for independence and eventual relinquishments of power. This is great when attempting to study decolonisation throughout the whole of the British Empire but not quite so helpful when attempting to focus on one particular region.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Power! 18 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I found this a very accessible and informed introduction to the subject of decolonisation. Dr White presents his thesis clearly and convincigly. Best of all, he avoids the over-simplfication and ommission that has undermined works by other authors in this area. Highly recommended.
