Overview

More than three decades after the withdrawal of American troops from Southeast Asia, the Vietnam War still resonates in political and cultural discourse and still motivates vibrant historical inquiry. The eminent scholars featured in The War That Never Ends present the newest perspectives on the war in Vietnam, from the homefront to Ho Chi Minh City, from the government halls to the hotbeds of activist opposition. The seventeen essays compiled by David L. Anderson and John Ernst examine Vietnamese as well as American experiences of the grueling conflict, breaking new ground on questions relating to gender, religion, ideology, media, and public opinion. The War That Never Ends sheds new light on the evolving historical meanings of the Vietnam War, its enduring influence on current matters of global significance, and its potential to influence American foreign policy, in times of peace and war.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rather than focusing on policymaking in Washington, the Cold War, or escalation, the essays in The War that Never Ends provide new insights on the Vietnamese perspective and experiences during the war, the fighting of the war, and protest movements." — Peace & Change

"It will stand as both an enduring tribute to an important historian and a significant scholarly contribution in its own right."— Journal of Cold War Studies" —

"Includes the role of women in the North Vietnamese war effort, the impact of Buddhism on the course of the Vietnam War, and the tensions between Marxism and Buddhism that appeared to be missed by American policymakers of the time." — Naval District of Washington Waterline
