The scholars featured in this book present the newest perspectives on the war in Vietnam, from the homefront to Ho Chi Minh City, from the government halls to the hotbeds of activist opposition. The seventeen essays compiled by the editors examine Vietnamese as well as American experiences of the grueling conflict, breaking new ground on questions relating to gender, religion, ideology, media, and public opinion. The book discusses the evolving historical meanings of the Vietnam War, its enduring influence on matters of global significance, and its potential to influence American foreign policy, in times of peace and war."@en ;
