Professor Louis’ collection of essays contains a number of interrelated themes on the downfall of the British Empire beginning with the Scramble for African colonies in 1882 and concluding with the withdrawal of British troops east of the Suez Canal in 1971. Louis states that the formal British Empire began to rapidly unravel after the Suez debacle in 1956. However, this did not signal an end to British informal influence in the region. In the Cold War era, the British played the crucial role of negotiating informal ties with many of their formal colonies in Africa and the Middle East for strategic purposes. Thus, strategy held a prominent place in the formal annexation of territory at the end of the nineteenth century and the ensuing switch to informal empire in the 1950s and 1960s. Accordingly, the move to informal empire in the 1950s and 1960s, with the support of the United States, mirrored the formal Scramble for African colonies at the end of the nineteenth century.
