Nice orange topstain. Often overlooked with this book is the important bibliography, afterword and index, very useful for scholars and collectors. Halberstam was one of the first to challenge the war effort after working in VN for the NY Times and writing a critical book in 1963, The Making of a Quagmire. The DJ is unclipped, $10.

Synopsis: Highlights the political and military figures who rose to prominence in the sixties and examines their role in shaping domestic and foreign policies, focusing on American involvement in Vietnam

From the Publisher: The Vietnam War has seemed more shadowy and cinematic to me than anything else for most of my life. I was born during the Watergate Hearings. My generation was touched by the war in Vietnam, but only in the sense that our parents were part of it--whether they marched for peace or served in the military or fell somewhere in between. But unlike the Baby Boomers, we are not defined by the war--it, literally and figuratively, did not make us. So, as a consequence, when I think of the Vietnam War it is the images that the generations before me created that come to mind--Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon...

When I read The Best and the Brightest, that all changed. For the first time, I understood. No matter what your position may have been or may be, this book fully and expertly explores the American foreign policy decisions and actions that led to this war and its execution and paints a clear picture of its catalytic role in the shaping of today's America.
