The British Empire in the Middle East, 1945-1951

Arab Nationalism, the United States, and Postwar Imperialism

Wm. Roger Louis

With intellectual rigor and careful attention to recently released papers, Wm. Roger Louis's study asks: Why did Britain's colonial empire begin to collapse in 1945 and how did the post-war Labour government attempt to sustain a vision of the old Empire through imperialism in the Middle East?
