This book is the second in the new series The Labour Governments, 1964-70 and concentrates on Britain's international policy under Britain's Labour governments in the 1960s. The coverage ranges from defense policy and the government machine to European integration, NATO and the Vietnam war. Harold Wilson and his ministers have often been accused of betraying the sense of promise that greeted their victory in 1964. Using recently released archival evidence, John W. Young argues that a more balanced view of the government will recognize the real difficulties that surrounded decision-making, not only on Vietnam, but also on Aden, the Nigerian Civil War and Rhodesia.
