Between 1957 and 1964 the Conservative governments of Harold Macmillan and Sir Alec Douglas-Home presided over a short but key period in 20th-century British history. During this period the British Empire was transformed into a multi-racial Commonwealth. This title examines the end of the empire during its climactic phase and aims to provide a closer understanding of the dynamics involved in decolonization. Published in two parts, it contains 583 official documents and covers many aspects and areas of colonial disengagement together with the main strategic questions of continuing defence commitments in Aden, the Indian Ocean and Singapore.
