The British Empire in the 1950s
Retreat or Revival?
By (author) Martin Lynn
British Empire in the 1950s by Martin Lynn
Book DescriptionThis collection of studies examines the history of the British empire during the 1950s. This is a relatively neglected period in the historiography of British decolonization, coming as it does after the more well researched era of the late 1940s that saw the start of moves to decolonize the empire. The papers in this volume analyze imperial policy and the place of the empire in British society during the 1950s and the degree to which these years represented a period of continuing retreat or of imperial re-assertion.
