"Editor Hall (history, Central Michigan U.) has aimed this history textbook on the Vietnam War era for high school students and undergraduates in American History courses, using analyses from leading historians to emphasize the social underpinnings of these events in order to stimulate classroom discussion. These essays focus on the generational divisions that led to anti-war activism and explore the war through the eyes of religious communities, military personnel, women, journalists, African-Americans, unions and students. A lengthy appendix contains relevant documents such as the Port Huron Statement and the AFL-CIO Vietnam Resolution." - Reference & Research Book News
