Cambon–Lansdowne Agreement (1904)

CAMBONLANSDOWNE AGREEMENT (1904)

pact between france and great britain affecting each country's activities in egypt and morocco.

After having been rivals for a long time, France and Great Britain mutually agreed to desist. According to the agreement, France had total freedom of action in Morocco; meanwhile France would stop interfering with English financial activities in Egypt, as it had since 1882. The English enjoyed immediate but limited advantages. As for the French, it meant getting potential interests and indicated the end of an obsessional opposition. The agreement took place on 8 April 1904 in a general atmosphere of mutual reconciliation, for the two countries were worried about Germany's growing power.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
