9789971693152: Britain, Southeast Asia and the Impact of the Korean War

A sequel to the author's previous two books: 'Britain, Southeast Asia and the Onset of the Pacific War' (1996) and 'Britain, Southeast Asia and the Onset of the Cold War' (1998), this volume discusses Britain's policy towards Southeast Asia in the period 1950-55, when it was crucially affected by the struggle in Korea. The phases in that struggle - briefly described and placed in a world context - provide the premise for discussing Britain's relations with Burma, Thailand, Indonesia and Indochina.

Covering the dispute over West New Guinea and the Chinese Nationalist incursion into Burma, Nicholas Tarling gives a full account of the Geneva conference more than 50 years ago, which reached a settlement regarding Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, and of the creation of the SEATO alliance. The focus of this work is on British policy, and it is largely based on a study of British official records.
