Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The major contribution Sills makes with this book is to tap the voluminous legal archives from the US veterans' 1980's class action suit against the companies that supplied the US government chemicals for the war in Viet Nam. These documents, not yet made accessible to the general public in this much detail, contribute to our knowledge of the development and use of chemicals in war, as well as to our understanding of the interactions between industry and government, and between science and politics."
--Diane Niblack Fox, The College of the Holy Cross

"Peter Sills' book is a veritable encyclopedia of information on the use of herbicides in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. He is a meticulous researcher, and a scholar who manages to write about a very controversial subject in an objective, unbiased manner."
--Fred Wilcox, author of Uncommon Martyrs
