About this book

This book examines French motivations behind the decolonisation of Tunisia and Morocco and the intra-Western Alliance relationships. It argues that changing French policy towards decolonisation brought about the unexpectedly quick process of independence of dependencies in the post-WWII era.

Reviews

“Grounded in extensive primary research in France, the United Kingdom and the United States, Ikeda’s book expands and deepens our knowledge of postwar decolonization in general and the Moroccan and Tunisian cases in particular. Focusing on two countries that have been little studied in the existing English-language literature, The imperialism of French decolonisation should be of considerable use to historians and readers interested in the process of decolonization.” (Ronald Bruce St. John, International Affairs, Vol. 92 (1), January, 2016)
