United States Relations with Belgium and the Congo, 1940-1960

Voorkant
University of Delaware Press, 1998 - 289 pagina's
The traverse of Belgo-American relations from a warm but limited connection in 1940 to close involvement accompanied by hurt feelings in 1961, and their subsequent rebound to a more healthy condition, frames consideration of multiple issues. Among these are the U.S. purchase of Congolese uranium and the fairness of the compensation paid, Belgium's assistance to U.S. efforts to encourage European integration, and the coming of independence in the Congo. The low country's participation in NATO, trade of Congo goods, and American policy toward UN action in the Congo are also involved.
