This review is from: Decolonisation: The British Experience since 1945 (Seminar Studies In History) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars End of the Empire, 1 Sep 2002
This review is from: Decolonisation: The British Experience since 1945 (Seminar Studies In History) (Paperback)
Intelligent, accessible, informative and interesting. This book has enable me to develop an indepth understanding in the roles and responsibilites of colonial powers in recent times. This era of history is of so much importance for us to understand many of the present economic and social conditions that affect us all worldwide.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Power!, 18 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Decolonisation: The British Experience since 1945 (Seminar Studies In History) (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.
