The scope of this vol. is limited to the political crisis that began in Pakistan in March 1971 with the government's efforts to suppress Bengali demands for virtual autonomy in East Pakistan and concluded with the establishment of the state of Bangladesh at the end of the year. The editor has compiled the record of the Nixon admin.'s response to the crisis in considerable detail. The crisis was managed largely out of the White House by President Nixon and his Assistant for National Security Affairs Henry Kissinger, with the support of the National Security Council staff. The vol. focuses on the management of the crisis by Nixon and Kissinger. Selected documentation traces the evolution of the U.S. response to the crisis from Nixon's initial reluctance to become involved to his "tilt" toward Pakistan which was highlighted by the despatch of the aircraft carrier Enterprise to the Bay of Bengal to act as a restraint on India in the war that had developed between India and Pakistan as a result of the crisis. Nixon was concerned that he and Kissinger had to protect the emerging opening to China, which had been facilitated by Pakistani President Yahya Khan. This vol. documents that concern, as well as the assurance offered to China that the U.S. would protect China from the Soviet Union if China took military action against India in support of Pakistan. This is a print on demand report.
