Between 1965 and 1973, hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans participated in one of the most remarkable and significant people's movements in American history. Through marches, rallies, draft resistance, teach-ins, civil disobedience, and non-violent demonstrations at both the national and local levels, Americans vehemently protested the country's involvement in the Vietnam War.

Rethinking the American Anti-War Movement provides a short, accessible overview of this important social and political movement, highlighting key events and key figures, the movement's strengths and weaknesses, how it intersected with other social and political movements of the time, and its lasting effect on the country. The book is perfect for anyone wanting to obtain an introduction to the Anti-War movement of the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Simon Hall is Senior Lecturer in American History at the University of Leeds, UK.

Review:

"Rethinking the American Anti War Movement is a well-researched, carefully written, and nuanced study that makes clear the tumultuous nexus of the most important intellectual threads of the 1960s. Simon Hall vividly demonstrates the complex interaction between the civil rights movement, the counterculture, the women's movement, and the anti-war movement and provides a guide to key events and players, which helps the reader make sense of this extraordinary era and its complex legacy."
Andrew A. Wiest, Professor and Director of International Studies, University of Southern Mississippi

"Hall adroitly cuts through our persistent nostalgia for the 1960s to give an insightful, engaging, balanced re-examination of protests against the Vietnam War. This is superb history, accessible to anyone interested in this most pivotal period in the modern American experience."
William Thomas Allison, Professor of History, Georgia Southern University

"Simon Hall ... has written an impressively researched, concise history of the anti-Vietnam War movement. With extensive endnotes and a wide-ranging bibliography, this is a superb introduction for students of the period and those interested in anti-war protest more broadly."
Peace News

"[T]he book provides the reader with a thorough education in the history of the American movement to end the war in Vietnam. ... Students and readers interested in the 1960s will benefit greatly from this book."
– H-Diplo

"[T]he author has packed the 150 pages with colorful quotes often presented in stimulating prose ... [I]n the long run, Rethinking the American Anti-War Movement is usually a good read."
Terry H. Anderson, Texas A&M University, in The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics, and Culture

"The author designed the book as a simple, well-organized description of the diverse movement’s key events and personalities.... [T]his is a solid student text that goes behind the scenes and explains the origins and events of one of the most dynamic periods in American history. Well-written, it will help students grapple with this period and explain the background to presidential political discussions in the 1990s."
Stephen A. Bourque, Cercles
