Description - The United States and the Vietnam War by Walter L. Hixson
More than a regional conflict, the Vietnam War was the most significant event in world affairs from the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s. With the world's leading superpower, the United States, embroiled in a major war, actions in Vietnam reverberated throughout the globe. Washington not only sought to subdue the guerillas in Vietnam but, as articles in this volume suggest, to manage its allies as well. France and Sweden, among others, condemned US militarization. Over time US diplomacy focused on the Paris negotiations and efforts to find a way out of Vietnam. This volume analyzes key players, along with the role of establishment critics.
