Abstract:

This book provides a reconstruction of a major British decolonization. Charting the ‘inner history’ of a violent colonial Emergency, it provides a case-study of the dilemmas posed by the challenge of terrorism overseas after 1945. The book analyses the evolution of a political settlement which, almost uniquely in the British ‘end of empire’, slid beyond the United Kingdom's control. It considers the effects of the revolt on the politics of the surrounding region, particularly in relation to the emerging ethnic struggle between Greeks and Turks. The book offers a fresh perspective on Mediterranean and Middle Eastern developments, including the involvement of NATO and the United States, in the age of the Suez Crisis and its aftermath.
