Martin Thomas and Richard Toye

  • The first book to apply a comparative approach to Anglo-French imperial rhetoric
  • Takes a broad chronological view from the age of high imperialism to the post-war era of decolonization

  • Highlights the factors that made 'co-imperialism' so crucial and yet so difficult to sustain
