Replacing France

This chapter discusses the efforts of the U.S. agencies to modernize and Westernize South Vietnam and imprint American values and culture on the Vietnamese people. At the same time, the Eisenhower administration had replaced the French colonial presence in South Vietnam with an American neocolonial one. It is noted that the Americans mostly stepped into places the French had vacated as they attempted to build South Vietnam on an American rather than a French model.
