This essay focuses on American travelers and residents in France and the ways in which they drew acute French governmental attention in the wake of growing political turbulence around the Vietnam War. As the antiwar movement grew, many members of this community became more radical. American and French authorities increased surveillance and control of these activists, in a number of cases deporting activists from the country. For the French government, the “import” of supposedly American issues like civil rights and the Vietnam War was a threat to its sense of public order, and it considered such events as the antiwar riots of April 1967 and the student revolt of May 1968 the results of foreign interference. Their response was to enforce a policy of separation between nationals and foreigners, with the idea that French matters should be kept apart from international (particularly American) matters.

Keywords:   Vietnam War, May 1968, antiwar movement, surveillance, deportations
