French Imperialism in Syria ,1927-1936

French Imperialism in Syria ,1927-1936

Author : Peter A. Shambrook

Since 1945, no detailed study of the French occupation in Syria specifically between 1927 and 1936 has been attempted by any specialitst in French history. Peter Shambrook seeks to bridge this gap with this significant account of French imperial policy during this period and beyond. Based largely on 30,000 pages of French diplomatic papers, released in the late 1980s at the Centre des Archives Diplomatiques in Nantes, this study analyses the process of French decision-making in Syria between the end of the Great Revolt in 1927 and the Franco-Syrian Treaty of September 1936. Peter Shambrook explores in full the positions of both protagonists and provides a fresh perspective on the conundrum that the French never really solved in Syria: how to maintain effective control, while attempting to appear faithful to their official mandatory policy to emancipate the territories. Dr Peter A. Shambrook obtained his Ph.D. in Middle Eastern history from the University of Cambridge. He has held the post of Research Fellow at the Centre for Lebanese Studies in Oxford (1997) and was also Programme Director for the British-Arab University Association (1974-87).
