Iraq and the Lessons of Vietnam
Or, How Not to Learn from the Past
By (author) Marilyn Young
Iraq and the Lessons of Vietnam by Marilyn Young
Book DescriptionLeading scholars of Vietnam examine the links between the Vietnam War and the war in Iraq - and the obsession of US foreign policy makers with the Vietnam Syndrome. Contributors look at the unlearned lessons of Vietnam and consider how the US has again found itself in the midst of an ill-advised war without any chance of a quick victory with sweeping regime change.
