I ran across this book while searching for additional sources for one of the papers I was updating for my capstone project.  I needed more information on Britain’s plans for British Malaya after the war, and how those plans may have differed from its plans for other territories that were formerly part of the British Empire.

The book is much broader than that obviously, and deals not just with specific territories but with the larger political debates going on within the British government and between Britain and the United States over the nature of that portion of the postwar  world which was formally known as the British Empire.  It was an interesting book, and I enjoyed it and recommend it highly if you are looking at the jockeying for postwar position between the allies which culminated in Britain’s departure from India.
