In 1945, Britain emerged as one of the "Big Three" victors of World War II. Most people, in Britain and elsewhere, seem to have assumed that the British Empire would endure for a very long time to come. Yet within 20 years British power and influence had been enormously reduced. This book studies the causes and course of the process.
