From the Back Cover:

Where the Domino Fell recounts the history of American involvement in Vietnam from the end of World War II up to 2010; it clarifies the political aims, military strategy, and social and economic factors that contributed to the participants' actions. Narrated in an accessible and lively style by two distinguished historians, the book explores the legacy of war in the region, and traces step by step how America got involved in the region and pulled deeper into the conflict. This sixth edition has been revised and updated to include a final chapter examining Vietnam through the point of view of the soldiers themselves, and brings the story up to the present day through a look at how the war has been memorialized. There are also additional images and new and improved maps. A final chapter examines Vietnam through the lens of Oliver Stone's films and opens up a discussion of the War in popular culture.

Compact yet substantial, and containing a bibliography, chronology, and glossary to further help students, Where the Domino Fell is an important contribution not only to the study of the Vietnam War but to an understanding of the larger workings of American foreign policy.
