Starting with the first Indochina War in the 1950s, this historical analysis covers the story of New Zealand's relations with Vietnam up to the end of the Vietnam War in the 1970s. Exploring the diplomatic history of the engagement, which is not well known or understood, and showing that New Zealand officials and politicians in fact entered the war with extreme reluctance, this describes how the dispatch of troops to Vietnam divided the country, enraged a generation, and forced the government to publicly defend its policy. Readers quickly discover that the fallout from the Vietnam conflict still affects New Zealand's position today—from its well-known antinuclear stance to its position over the recent Iraq conflict.

Book Description Auckland University Press, New Zealand, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. New Zealand and the Vietnam War will be published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of New Zealand combat troops leaving to support the US Vietnam. The Vietnam War provoked a major crisis in New Zealand attitudes to foreign policy, breaking for the first time the almost universal consensus about how the country should handle political and military issues beyond its shores. The despatch of troops to assist the United States of America in Vietnam divided the country, enraged a generation and forced the government to publicly defend its policy. New Zealand and the Vietnam War is the first major study of these events, and is the fruit of many years of detailed research which draws on government archives, newspapers, records of the protest movement and a range of other sources. Starting with the first Indochina War in the 1950s, it covers the story of New Zealand s relations with Vietnam up to the end of the Vietnam War in the 1970s. It explores the diplomatic history of the engagement, which is not well known or understood, and shows that officials and politicians in fact entered the war with extreme reluctance. Its account of the passionate domestic politics provoked by the war will also be of wide interest. Seller Inventory # BZV9781869403409
