Described as an epiphany for the Asian and African countries craving postwar independence from foreign domination, the Bandung (Indonesia) conference created a sense of critical mass between the states that became known as the Third World and the West in what was subsequently referred to as North-South relations. The U.S. was particularly suspicious of neutralism, nonalignment, the spread of Communism, and the growing menace of the Cold War; the U.K. took a similar view, but was especially concerned with the conference's impact on their African colonies; for Japan the conference encapsulated the now historic contradictory foreign policy tensions between subordination to a U.S.-led hegemony and a desire for influence in Asia. Now fifty years on, with significantly more primary references available, Kweku Ampiah's study provides a much-needed in-depth reevaluation of the conference as a whole, focusing in particular on the external influences and preoccupations impacting on the participants seen through three case studies involving the U.S., U.K., and Japan.
