La Véritable Crise de Suez: Fin d'une Grande Oeuvre du XIXe Siècle

By Jacques Georges-Picot

Éditions de la Revue Politique et Parlementaire, 1975, 337 pp.

The former Director-General of the Suez Canal Company reveals his side of the story of the nationalization of July 1956 and his efforts to pick up the pieces. He is sharply critical of the big banks and insurance companies as well as the governments of France, Britain, and the United States.
