About this book

Harold Macmillan's 'Wind of Change' speech, delivered to the South African parliament in Cape Town at the end of a landmark six-week African tour, presaged the end of the British Empire in Africa. This book, the first to focus on Macmillan's 'Wind of Change', comprises a series of essays by leading historians in the field.

Reviews

"The essays contained within The Wind of Change provide an unparalleled exploration of Harold Macmillan's famous speech and its effects on the wider British world, from South Africa and Northern Rhodesia through Central Africa and the United States, to the United Kingdom itself. Written with clarity and elucidation throughout, this powerful work will take its essential place on the bookshelves of all historians of Britain in the twentieth century, decolonization, and the post-colonial legacy." Ben Grob-Fitzgibbon, Cleveland C. Burton Professor of International Programs, University of Arkansas, USA
