More About This Textbook

Overview

"Energetic in its outrage" (Booklist), A People's History of the Vietnam War is an exciting new installment of The New Press's People's History Series. Jonathan Neale's incisive account of the war America lost "turns up episodes that other histories gloss over or miss altogether" (Kirkus Reviews), from the perspective of those who opposed it on both sides of the battlefront as well as on the home front. The protagonists in Neale's history of the "American War" (as the Vietnamese refer to it) are common people struggling to shape the outcome of events unfolding on an international stage -- American foot soldiers who increasingly oppose American military policy on the ground in Vietnam, local Vietnamese activists and guerrillas fighting to build a just society, and the American civilians who mobilized to bring the war to a halt. His narrative includes vivid, first-person commentary from the ordinary men and women whose collective actions resulted in the defeat of the world's most powerful military machine.
