Decolonisation : The British experience since 1945 - 2nd. Edition
Decolonisation: The British Experience since 1945 is a concise and accessible introduction which introduces students to this often dramatic story of colonial wars and emergencies, and fraught international relations. The 2nd edition provides an overview of the process of British decolonisation. The eclipse of the British Empire has been one of the central features of post-war international history.
At the end of the Second World War the empire still spanned the globe and yet by the mid-1960s most of Britain's major dependencies had achieved independence.
