Sample Book Report Paper on Fall of British Empire After World War 2

Fall of British Empire After World War 2

The British Empire consisted of dominions, protectorates, colonies, mandates, as well as other territories that were under the administration or rule of the United Kingdom and its predecessor states. The origin of the empire can be traced to the period between the late sixteenth and early eighteenth centuries when England established overseas possessions and trading posts. It was considered the largest empire in global history at its height and was the foremost global power for over a century. As of 1931, the British Empire controlled over 412 million people that accounted for around 23 percent of the global population at the time. By 1920, the total area covered or controlled by the empire was 35,500, 000 square kilometres representing 24 percent of the earth’s total land area. Many described the British Empire as “the empire on which the sun never sets”, as the sun was always shining on at least one of its territories given its expanse around the globe.[1] However, the empire disintegrated after the Second World War, thus resulting in the transformation of global politics. Before the Second World War, the British Empire was at the centre of colonization and relied on colonies from which it obtained manpower, raw materials, as well as strategic bases. The colonies became expensive liabilities for the leadership of the British Empire, Clement Attlee, who was at the helm of the newly elected labor government at the time. Thus, this paper explores the fall of the British Empire after World War 2 extensively with a primary focus on the reasons for its decline after the war.

Reasons for the Decline of the British Empire After 1945

The Impact of World War Two

One of the major factors that contributed to the collapse of the British imperial power after 1945 was the impact of World War Two.[2]  The collapse of the empire was all but complete by around the mid-1960s. Between 1940 and 1942, the war witnessed catastrophic defeats of Britain in key regions such as Asia. The defeats had further ramifications on Britain’s financial and economic independence both of which were the cornerstones of the imperial system. The British security also depended heavily on the old balance of power at home and abroad although this was erased by the impact of World War Two. Britain came out as one of the victorious allies after the war although the defeat of major powers such as Germany was largely because of the role played by the Soviet and America. Japan, which was another force to reckon during the war, was defeated almost entirely by the United States.[3] Even though Britain recovered most of the territories it had lost during the war, the prestige, authority, and wealth it enjoyed before were severely reduced. As such, the British were locked into an imperial endgame with every exit blocked.

Partition and Withdrawal from India

Another major factor that contributed to the decline or weakness of the British Empire was its withdrawal from India in 1947. As the Second World War continued, Britain was at an upper hand as it had control over India and mobilised India’s resource for imperial war effort. Given the benefit it got from India’s resources, the British Empire crushed every attempt by Indian leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress to push them out of India in 1942.[4] The biggest problem encountered by Britain was the need to win the support of the Indian National Congress that saw it promise to give India full independence upon the end of the Second World War. Within a few months after the war ended, there was a renewed mass campaign by the Congress that could hardly be defeated by Britain that lacked the means to do so as a result of the exhaustion of their officials and the lack of troops. After the war, Britain still had hopes of keeping the self-governing India as part of its system of imperial defence and was desperate to keep both India and its army. However, these hopes by Britain came to nothing and the arrival of Lord Louis Mountbatten in India did not help either.[5] Indian leaders such as Jawaharlal Nehru and the Indian National Congress pushed for the partition of India to prevent a descent into chaos and war and allow the transfer of power from British to Indian hands. When Mountbatten staged a handover to the Indian-led government, Britain lost total control over India and could not enjoy the previous benefits such as resources that helped to strengthen the economy of the British Empire.

Economic Struggles

The financial strain of fighting the Second World War harmed the British economy, thus interfering with its capacity to maintain a large global empire as early intended.[6] Before the start of the Second World War, Britain was in a good position from an economic perspective thanks to the Ottawa Conference of 1932 that ensured that trade between Britain and its colonies had very low tariffs whereas trade with the rest of the world had high tariffs. This policy was referred to as Imperial Preference and it worked to the advantage of the British Empire by ensuring British domination of colonial economies while reducing the level of competition from countries such as the United States. Research shows that before the Second World War, Britain was a major economic superpower and dominated global politics as well.[7] In fact, the British currency, the Pound, was considered the strongest and most reliable currency at the time. In 1938, the Pound was pegged at $4 for every pound. This changed after the war that severely damaged the economy of Britain prompting the devaluation of the initially strong pound against the U.S. dollar. In 1949, the pound was pegged at $2.38 for every 1 pound. While Britain’s economy was on a decline, the U.S. economy was on the rise and later emerged much stronger than the Imperialist European economies including Britain. This is highlighted by the fact that after the Second World War, the Gross National Production of the U.S. was approximately 50 percent higher whereas that of Europe, which Britain was part of, was around 25 percent lower. The incessant fighting and bombings devastated the British industry.[8]

Britain’s economic struggles worsened after the Second World War as the U.S., which was a British colony, dictated the terms of the loans that were needed for the purpose of rebuilding and maintaining the British Empire. Britain required approximately $800 million annually to maintain its soldiers throughout the Empire, and this would have consumed approximately 25 percent of the loan deal signed between Britain and the United States in 1945. Upon his election as British Prime Minister, Clement Attlee sent an economist, John Maynard, to negotiate the terms of a loan to be offered by the U.S. Given the difficult economic times, Britain needed a generous loan of $5billion with no interest. Instead, the U.S. offered a loan of $3.75 billion that would earn a 2 percent interest annually. The difficult financial or economic position of Britain forced it into accepting the loan, and as a result, the Empire could no longer afford to enjoy the great-power it had before. A rationing policy was introduced during the Second World War with the aim of preserving precious resources and was not abolished until 1954 after the end of the war. The outcome of the policy was Britain’s inability to fulfil its position as a dominant global power. There was a transition of power from the British Empire to the U.S., as the latter took over the provision of economic assistance to European countries such as Greece and Turkey; a role that was previously played by the British Empire.[9]

The Rise of the Labour Party

The rise of the Labour Party after 1945 played a role in the decline of the British Empire. Although it rejoiced at its political triumph that was the first independent parliamentary majority in the history of the party in the period between 1945 and 1951, the Labour Party faced myriads of problems.[10] The party’s triumph came after a war that had stripped the British Empire of almost all its foreign financial resources and the Empire had also accumulated massive debts owed to other countries that would have to be paid in foreign currencies. The debts amounted to billions of pounds, which was a significant challenged amidst Britain’s economic problems. With these problems at hand, the Labour Party came up with measures that would see a change of the empire’s interests from the global perspective to a more national perspective. The shift from global to national interests spearheaded by the Labour Party marked the decline of the British Empire. The party started with the nationalization of rail roads and coal mines as well as the Bank of England. It also spearheaded the nationalization of road transport, harbours, docks, as well as the production of electrical power. Moreover, the Labour Party oversaw the enactment of the social welfare legislation that was referred to as the “welfare state.” There was also the enactment of a comprehensive program of national insurance that was based upon the Beveridge Report. These and other efforts by the Labour Party to focus more on national interests at the expense of colonies and other global interests paved the way for the decline of the British Empire after the Second World War.

Decolonization

Before the Second World War, it was largely believed that Britain was a global superpower and many people fairly stated that “The sun never set on the British Empire.”[11]

 

This was true for several decades although the process of decolonization after the Second World War paved the way for the decline of the British Empire. The process of decolonization saw Britain grant independence to all its major economies in India and Africa. Decolonization in India started with the formation of successful social movements by Mahatma Gandhi that inspired a change in the perceptions that Indians had of colonial power that ultimately resulted in the collapse of the British Colonial Empire. Over the course of the centuries-long British occupation of India, there was the eruption of several conflicts and uprisings. The uprisings gained momentum upon the return of Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi from South Africa between 1915 and 1920. Gandhi then led and advocated for Indians to boycott not only British institutions but also products though non-violently. The social movement spearheaded by Gandhi was referred to as “Swadeshi.” Gandhi’s efforts were later recognized by the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru in his independence speech of 1947. During Second World War, Gandhi’s momentum peaked and caused strain on Britain. This, alongside internal pressures in India, saw Britain seize control and help India attain freedom. The then Britain’s Prime Minister, Clement Attlee, acknowledged the “state of great tension” meaning that Britain had little choice but to grant India its freedom in 1947 as the separate states of India and Pakistan.

India’s independence movement changed the perceptions of not only Europeans and Americans but also Africans who were also under the colonization of Britain and other European countries. Gandhi’s successful social movements in India inspired African nationalist leaders such as Kwame Nkrumah in the British colony in the Gold Coast. After his studies in the United States, Nkrumah returned to Africa and became the leader of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) in 1950. The party pushed for self-government and campaigned for positive action that involved strikes, nonviolent protests, and non-cooperation with the British colonial authorities. Ghana’s independence from Britain began a wave of British decolonization across Africa and almost all British colonies were granted independence in the decade after 1950.[12] Essentially, the period of decolonization saw the sun set on the British Empire.

The Suez Crisis

Almost 10 years after the end of the Second World War, there was a brooding sense of change that was palpable. At the time, the fervent hope for a fairer and more peaceful world was yet to materialize. Rather, the world was bracing for a new Cold War that was centered on opposing ideologies of communism and capitalism. Europe was fractured, at the time, it was gradually coming to terms with the ideologies of communism and capitalism and were reluctant to grant freedom to their empires. For Britain, its biggest challenge and one of the biggest foreign policy disasters of the late 20th century revolved around the control of the Suez Canal. British control of the Suez Canal was attributed to the fact that it provided a crucial sea route to its empire.[13] The control over the canal started in the 1870s upon the purchase of Egypt’s shareholding in the canal for 4 million pounds by the then Britain’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. The development of the Persian Gulf oilfield in the first half of the twentieth century saw the canal become a significant investment for Great Britain. The turning point and the onset of the Suez crisis came in July 1956 following the decision by then Egypt’s President, Abdel Nasser, to nationalize the canal.[14]

At the time of its nationalization, the canal was under the joint ownership of Britain and France. The decision was seen as an attack by the two countries that resorted to overthrow Nasser. The two countries hatched a plan that resulted in Israelis invasion of Egypt. The Israeli attack on Egypt started on October 29, 1956, and was used by Britain and France to send in their troops to fight Egyptian forces in a bid to overthrow Nasser. This triggered the intervention of the United Nations and the United States who demanded for a ceasefire. The Soviet Union’s threat to intervene prompted the withdrawal of Britain, France, and Israel from Egypt, which was seen as a humiliating climb down. Although the Suez crisis did not do much as far as destroying Britain’s status as a global power is concerned, it openly exposed the decline of the British Empire that until that point had been kept hidden.[15] The Suez crisis also strained the relationship between the U.S. and Britain and showed the latter that it was no longer the power that it still believed it was. The intervention of the UN, U.S., and the Soviet Union forced Britain to back down, which was a big humiliation for Britain as it played out in the eyes of the world. The crisis also set the stage for the impending break-up of the British Empire that British politicians had long been aware of. According to historians, the crisis marked the beginning of the end of the previously powerful British Empire and boosted the growing anti-colonial movement around the world.[16] Ten years after the Suez crisis, much of the British empire was gone with this happening quicker than the world thought it would.

The British Empire was one of the most powerful empires in world history, at least before the period after the Second World War. It was made up of dominions, protectorates, colonies, mandates, and other territories that were controlled and ruled by the UK and its predecessor states. The Empire had control of over 412 million people as of 1931, which represented around 23 percent of the global population. However, a decline of the Empire was witnessed after the Second World War due to various factors. One of the factors linked to the decline of the British Empire after WWII is the impact of the war. Between 1940 and 1942, there were catastrophic defeats of Britain in key regions such as Asia. The defeats had further ramifications on Britain’s financial and economic independence that were crucial to its imperial system. The partition and ultimate withdrawal from India, which was one of its major sources of resources, also contributed to the decline of the British Empire. A third reason is the economic struggles encountered by Britain after WWII. The U.S. took Britain’s position as a global economic power and dictated the terms of the loans that were needed to rebuild and maintain the British Empire. Fourth, the rise of the Labour Party contributed to the decline of the Empire because of its move to shift from global interests to more national interests. The Labour Party administration focused more on nationalizing property to benefit Britain and its citizens while ignoring Britain’s overseas empires. A fifth reason for the decline of the British Empire is decolonization that began in India and spread to Ghana and the rest of Africa controlled by the British. A sixth reason for the empire’s decline was the Suez Crisis that resulted in Britain’s humiliation by new superpowers including the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
