H-Net Reviews ." . . an important contribution to understanding the tangled and tragic unfolding of the modern history of Indochina." . Choice ." . . in this absorbing study, Martin Shipway examines one of France's most catastrophic colonial miscalculations." . Modern and Contemporary France ." . . Well researched, clearly written and solidly argued, this study poses new questions, opens the possibility of larger comparisons . . ." . The Journal of Asian Studies How did France become embroiled in Vietnam, in the first of long wars of decolonization? And why did the French colonial administration, in late 1946, having negotiated with Ho Chi Minh for a year, adopt a warlike stance towards Ho's regime which ran counter to the liberal colonial doctrine of liberated France? Based on French archival sources, almost all of them previously unavailable to the English-speaking reader, the author assesses the policy that emerged from the 1944 Brazzaville conference; and the doomed attempt to apply that policy in Indo-China. Martin Shipway teaches in the Department of French, Birkbeck College, University of London.
