Description - The United States and the Vietnam War by Walter L. Hixson
The Vietnam War left such an imprint on American culture and, moreover, on Vietnamese culture, as to endure in popular memory and representation for generations to come. In the United Staes, nothing better symbolized this issue than the Vietnam memorial Wall in Washington DC, the forcus of several articles in this volume. Scholars also probe American and Vietnamese film, literature, television and textbooks to draw conclusions about the way in which the war has been remembered and represented to the popular culture. Although women played an active non-combat role in the war, as several authors in this volume remind us , they were long neglected in the history and popular discourse of the Vietnam War.
