Trial

This collection contains Blue Books and other archival material from thirteen British colonies and protectorates in Africa compiled during the period 1821–1953. The standardized nature of the Blue Books allows for comparisons to be drawn geographically (i.e. between colonies) and over time on issues and trends such as the slave trade, economic policy, education, and public health.

Conflict in Indochina This link opens in a new window
Trial
This collection of Foreign Office Files provides a comprehensive history of key events across Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos during a period of political upheaval, civil unrest and escalating conflict. Published in two sections, Conflict in Indochina explores the rising tension across Indochina after 1959:

Crisis and Upheaval, 1959-1964
Escalation, Reunification and Withdrawal, 1965-1979

Comprising correspondence, maps, photographs and memoranda, this collection examines how the conflict crossed international borders and impacted the wider region. Administrative reports offer insight into the internal politics of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, covering key themes such as trade, economic development and increasing political instability. Documents reveal the growing intervention from foreign powers, as China and the Soviet Union sought to expand their influence over communist parties in the region.


Files of the British Foreign Office (FO 371) and from the Southeast Asian Department (FCO 15) demonstrate how Britain acted as an intermediary between regional actors in Indochina, ambitiously seeking to dissuade policies that would escalate the conflict. Britain maintained a close relationship with America throughout the period covered by Conflict in Indochina. Diplomatic records between the two countries demonstrate the significance of this relationship for British foreign policy and provide fresh perspectives on American escalation in Indochina.
