British policy in Aden and the protectorates 1955-67; last outpost of a Middle East empire.


British policy in Aden and the protectorates 1955-67; last outpost of a Middle East empire.

Mawby, Spencer.



210 pages




Mawby (history, U. of Nottingham) describes the process of British imperial expansion and retreat undertaken in southwest Arabia during the 12 years, explains why British policy developed in the manner that it did, and places the episode in the context of the clash between Arab nationalism and British imperialism in the Middle East. What was then the colony of Aden is now part of the reunited Yemen. He places his study firmly within the tradition of diplomatic and colonial history based on government archives, with perhaps a slight divergence into the ideological underpinnings of both British policy and nationalist groups.
