What People are Saying About This
Jeffreys-Jones deserves praise for documenting the diversity of the antiwar movement. While many surveys of the period focus exclusively on famous demonstrations and white male campus activists, this work amply demonstrates that all kinds of people opposed the war-not only radical students, but significant numbers of blue-collar workers, African-Americans, homemakers, clergy, businessmen, and Vietnam Veterans.
