Review:


"This is simply the best collection of documents pertaining to the long and difficult struggle for Vietnam. Mark Atwood Lawrence is one of our leading scholars of the international history of the war, and he shows it here, compiling a superb and wide-ranging sourcebook that provides crucial insight into the aims and policies of all sides in the conflict."--Fredrik Logevall, author of Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the Making of America's Vietnam


"A superb collection of documents representing a variety of national and individual perspectives on the war in Vietnam. Highly recommended for classroom use."--George C. Herring, author of America's Longest War: The United States and Vietnam, 1950-1975


"From the writings of war leaders in Washington, Hanoi, and Saigon, to the voices of men and women affected by the fighting on the ground, and to noteworthy images of the conflict that traversed the globe, Lawrence has captured the Vietnam War era through this indispensable volume."--Lien-Hang T. Nguyen, author of Hanoi's War: An International History of the War for Peace in Vietnam


"This splendid new documentary collection makes an ideal contribution to any course on the Vietnam War. It utilizes fresh documents from a range of perspectives to introduce students and general readers alike to the complexities of the Vietnam War."--Robert McMahon, author of The Limits of Empire: The United States and Southeast Asia Since World War II
