'Roger Louis and Roger Owen, two authorities on the region, offer us materials for a truly international history of the crisis, going beyond the familiar focus on the Western powers.' David Reynolds, Christ's College, Cambridge, EHR, Apr.92 `admirable attempt to evaluate the crisis in a multi-lateral context' History October 1990 `admirably wide-ranging in its coverage ... there is much to be gained from this collection.' 20th Century British History `the width and depth of the coverage ... mean that the volume will remain an essential point of reference for all students of the subject for a considerable time.' International Affairs `a remarkable book by any account ... Twenty-two leading authorities, British, American, Arab and Israeli, have assembled what must be virtually all the relevant documentation ... and then assessed them in virtuoso essays that are a monument to their industry and objectivity.' Jewish Chronicle `This is not ... a book to be ignored ... essays are chosen and arranged to give a comprehensive view of the crisis.' Times Literary Supplement `A splendid collaborative effort by the leading experts, some of whom were active in the crisis, to establish the causes and consequences of Suez, in the light of newly available evidence ... A major work.' Foreign Affairs
