This study seeks to analyze the 20th century with regard to activities that comprise colonial rule and colonial opposition and those values and institutions which provided structure and purpose for both. What is called "decolonization" was something less calculated and more interactive than that term suggests. This study will attempt to explain these characteristics. Organized chronologically rather than geographically, arranged around a dominant issue or following a pronounced development, the chapters of this book highlight the complicated history of the last half-century of the French colonial empire.

Preface - Introduction: The French Colonial Empire in the Context of Modern History - Historical Conditions - An Empire Peaceful and Disturbed - The Changing Scene in the Colonial World - The Despair and Hope of War - Caution and Confusion - Dissolution - Accumulating Failure: Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria - The Peaceful Devolution of Authority: Subsaharan Africa - Conclusion - Source Notes - General Sources
