A Political, Social, and Military History, 3 Vol. Set
by Spencer Tucker
From Booklist , May 1, 1996
This comprehensive, clearly written work brings together the political, military,
diplomatic, and cultural aspects of the war, with the most detailed focus on America's
involvement. Many articles trace the historical background of Southeast Asia and the war's
impact on the region and the wider world. Editor Kutler, a professor of American
Institutions at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, has written on the Nixon presidency.
The list of contributors includes scholars from the U.S. Army Center of Military
History and other institutions and many persons whose affiliations are listed as
"Madison, Wisconsin," suggesting they are graduate students.
A chronology outlines Vietnam's early history, the French
colonial era, growing U.S. intervention, full-scale war, and the aftermath, concluding
with U.S. recognition in 1995.
Highly recommended for readers and writers of military history, students of the conflict,
professional soldiers, and others who seek to understand our most traumatic event since
the Civil War.
The New York Times Book Review
"Mr. Spector achieves what forests of memoirs and post-mortems of Vietnam have failed
to accomplish... A coherent and often gripping account of a year in the greatest military
misadventure of our century."
Military historian and ex-marine Ronald Spector marks the upcoming 25th anniversary of the
Tet offensive which presaged the worst fighting that took place the year following.
Detailing the deterioration of race relations, the growth of the drug
culture, and even the experience of South Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers, this
comprehensive history may stand as one of the most important books about Vietnam.
