Demise of the British Empire in the Middle East Britain's Responses to Nationalist Movements, 1943-55

Innbundet / 1998 / Engelsk
Britain emerged from World War II dependent economically and militarily upon the US. Egypt was the hub of Britain's imperial interests in the Middle East, but her inability to maintain a large garrison there was clear to the indigenous peoples. These essays track the decline of the empire.
