This book analyzes the ideas and policies that governed the British experience of decolonization. It shows how the British political tradition with its emphasis on experience over abstract theory was integral to the way in which the empire was regarded as being transformed rather than lost. This was a significant aspect of the relatively painless British loss of empire. D. George Boyce places the process of decolonization in its wider context, tracing the 20th century domestic and international conditions that hastened decolonization.
