9780742561342: Light at the End of the Tunnel: A Vietnam War Anthology

Of all of the wars in which the U.S. has been engaged, none has been as divisive as the conflict in Vietnam. The repercussions of this unsettling episode in American history still resonate in our society. Although it ended more than 30 years ago, the Vietnam War continues to fascinate and trouble Americans.

The third edition of Light at the End of the Tunnel gives a full overview of the conflict. Starting with Ho Chi Minh's revolt against the French, editor Andrew J. Rotter takes the reader through the succeeding years as scholars, government officials, journalists, and others recount the important events in the conflict and examine issues that developed during this tumultuous time.

This book is essential reading for anyone who has an interest in understanding the Vietnam War. The readings in it will enlighten students about this turning point in the history of the United States and the world. The third edition includes greater coverage of the Vietnamese experience of the war and reflects the growing interest in understanding the war as an international event, not just a bilateral or trilateral conflict.

About the Author:

Andrew J. Rotter is Charles A. Dana Professor of History at Colgate University.

Review:

Andrew Rotter's anthology on the Vietnam War has always been the best book available on this conflict. This third edition has been substantially revised. Rotter has retained those articles that are essential for understanding the scope and complexity of the Vietnam War and has included new articles that will give students even more insight into the many facets of American and Southeast Asian history that continue to haunt us to this day.

(Steven Hood, Ursinus College)

Light at the End of the Tunnel is the best Vietnam War anthology available. Andrew Rotter’s freshman-friendly twenty-page capsule history of this complex conflict is a godsend to teachers and worth the price of the book all by itself. I didn't think this anthology could get any better, but darned if Rotter hasn't pulled it off.

(Seth Jacobs, Boston College)

As in the earlier editions, Andrew Rotter shows a keen understanding of the best ways to enhance classroom debate, compiling a text that is accessible, readable, and sensitive to the deep interest in Vietnam shared by today's students. In its diversity and centrality of topics, its balanced inclusion of readable, accessible and academically respected articles, and its genuine tolerance and sympathy, this text remains one of the best options available in support of Vietnam courses.

(Susan Farnsworth, Trinity (Washington) University)
