"Fry details the dramatic confrontations between the Senate committees and the administration spokesmen, Dean Rusk and Robert McNamara, and he probes the success of congressional efforts to influence Vietnam policy. Ultimately, Fry shows how the Fulbright and Stennis hearings provide insight into the debate over why the United States was involved in Vietnam and how the war should have been conducted."--BOOK JACKET."
