Reassessing Suez 1956: New Perspectives on the Crisis and its Aftermath by Simon C. Smith

Although much has been written on the nationalization of the Suez Canal, and the subsequent military action, this study provides fresh perspectives by reflecting the latest research from leading international authorities on the crisis. Drawing on recently released documents, including previously neglected aspects of Suez, and by reassessing its more familiar ones, the volume makes a key contribution to furthering research on, and understanding of, events in Egypt in 1956.
