The American Conception of Neutrality After 1941
This is a study of global political history since 1941 with a particular emphasis on America's attitude to neutrality. This revised and updated edition contains three entirely new chapters including an insightful new introduction and conclusion, drawing on newly released documentation, most importantly on Southeast Asia and the Vietnam War. This book looks at world affairs through the eyes of neutrality and it covers, amongst other issues, America's contribution to the decline of world neutrality, the major economic and military events surrounding World War II, the founding of NATO and the problems of neutrality during the Vietnam War. New evidence is included - on, for example, the end of the cold war and the unification of Germany.
