Arguing about Empire

Imperial Rhetoric in Britain and France, 1882-1956

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
  • Illuminates key historical turning-points through case studies of Tunisia, Egypt, the Sudan, Morocco, Turkey, and Suez, as well as WWII
  • Highlights the factors that made 'co-imperialism' so crucial and yet so difficult to sustain
