Imperialism at Bay Summary


Imperialism at Bay: The United States and the Decolonization of the British Empire 1941-45 by Wm Roger Louis

This book examines the wartime controversies between Britain and America about the future of the colonial world, and considers the ethical, military, and economic forces behind imperialism during World War II. It concludes that, for Britain, there was a revival of the sense of colonial mission; the Americans, on the other hand, felt justified in creating a strategic fortress in the Pacific Islands while carrying the torch of "international trusteeship" throughout the rest of the world-a scheme that Churchill and others viewed as a cloak for American expansion.
