Ends of British Imperialism by Roger Louis

Book Description

This is a major work of imperial history, by (in the words of A.J.P. Taylor) 'the foremost historian of the British Empire and Commonwealth in his generation'. "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 - itself the mirror-image of what was to become decolonization - through the Mandates system of 'sacred trust', the turbulent imperial history of the Second World War in Asia and finally to the the unstoppable mid-20th century rush to independence. Of particular relevance as its 50th anniversary approaches, the Suez crisis was 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.

1958 was a turning point in the history of the Middle East and the Arab World. The Arabs seemed to be splitting from the West and realigning itself with the Communists. This gap was bridged by US military dominance, the UN, and lucrative links between the Iraqi regime and western petrol companies.
