The anti-Vietnam War movement marked the first time in American history that record numbers marched and protested to an antiwar tune-on college campuses, in neighborhoods, and in Washington. Although it did not create enough pressure on decision-makers to end U.S. involvement in the war, the movement's impact was monumental. In Antiwarriors, author Melvin Small describes not only the origins and trajectory of the anti-Vietnam War movement in America, but also focuses on the way it affected policy and public opinion and the way it in turn was affected by the government and the media, and, consequently, events in Southeast Asia. The antiwar movement comes to life in this compelling new book that is sure to fascinate all those interested in the Vietnam War and the turbulent, tumultuous 1960s.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this superb overview of the antiwar movement during the 1960s-1970s, Small again demonstrates his mastery of the literature and his skill in using memorable quotes from both sides to highlight the individuals who changed America and the events that marked that transformation. -- Walter LaFeber
Antiwarriors is a finely balanced history of the antiwar movement that is mature in its judgments, persuasively argued, and a crisply written account of a passionate period. -- Marilyn B. Young, author of The Vietnam Wars, 1945-1990
A stimulating and balanced exploration of the controversial antiwar movement. Lucid, cogent, and insightful, Antiwarriors is ideal for anyone who wants to know how and why Americans opposed their own government over the long and tragic war in Vietnam. -- Terry Anderson, Texas A& M University, author of The Movement and The Sixties
At last, here is a much-needed, long-awaited, and readable survey of manageable, modest length about the history and impact of the anti-Vietnam War movement by a leading historian of the topic and the period. -- Jeffrey Kimball, Miami University, author of Nixon's Vietnam War
Antiwarriors would serve as an extremely useful supplement to U.S. survey courses as well as courses on the Vietnam War. Sociologists who study the structure of mass movements, should find the work of interest as well. -- William F. Mugleston, Floyd College * Teaching History: A Journal of Methods, Vol. 30, No. 1, Spring 2005 *
