Book Description:
The history of Canada's postwar foreign policy is dominated by Cold War narratives the Gouzenko Affair, UN peacekeeping missions, and the Cuban Missile Crisis. By contrast, the story of Canada's response to decolonization in the Global South is less well known. 'Fire and the Full Moon' explores Canadian Indonesian relations to determine whether Canada's postwar foreign policy was guided by an overarching set of principles. By framing Canada's response to Indonesian independence within a trans Pacific international context, it shows that Canada was a loyal member of the Western alliance. Meanwhile, its policymakers wanted developing countries to follow Canada's own non revolutionary model of decolonization. Larger policy objectives and economic development work, in turn, caused Canada to overlook Indonesian human rights violations in East Timor. Webster's reassessment of Canada's foreign policy objectives and national image will appeal to students and practitioners of Canadian foreign policy and relations with Asia and the developing world.
