Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More than three decades after the final withdrawal of American troops from Southeast Asia, the legacy of the Vietnam War continues to influence political, military, and cultural discourse. Journalists, politicians, scholars, pundits, and others have used the conflict to analyze each of America's subsequent military engagements. Many Americans have observed that Vietnam-era terms such as "cut and run," "quagmire," and "hearts and minds" are ubiquitous once again as comparisons between U.S. involvement in Iraq and in Vietnam seem increasingly appropriate. Because of its persistent significance, the Vietnam War era continues to inspire vibrant historical inquiry. The eminent scholars featured in The War That Never Ends offer fresh and insightful perspectives on the continuing relevance of the Vietnam War, from the homefront to "humping in the boonies," and from the great halls of political authority to the gritty hotbeds of oppositional activism. The contributors assert that the Vietnam War is central to understanding the politics of the Cold War, the social movements of the late twentieth century, the lasting effects of colonialism, the current direction of American foreign policy, and the ongoing economic development in Southeast Asia. The seventeen essays break new ground on questions relating to gender, religion, ideology, strategy, and public opinion, and the book gives equal emphasis to Vietnamese and American perspectives on the grueling conflict. The contributors examine such phenomena as the role of women in revolutionary organizations, the peace movements inspired by Buddhism, and Ho Chi Minh's successful adaptation of Marxism to local cultures. The War That Never Ends explores both the antiwar movement and the experiences of infantrymen on the front lines of battle, as well as the media's controversial coverage of America's involvement in the war. The War That Never Ends sheds new light on the evolving historical meanings of the Vietnam War, its enduring influence, and its potential to influence future political and military decision-making, in times of peace as well as war.

Download or read book Vietnam: the War That Never Ends written by Steven Lower and published by . This book was released on 2015-06-10 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: To many people the Vietnam War is either a distant memory best forgotten or something they've heard about in their American History class. But to me, and to many other people like me who lived through the experience, it is a part of us. The Vietnam War was one of the defining events for our generation. To most Americans the Vietnam War was limited to the conflict between North and South Vietnam. And, while most of the ground battles were, indeed, fought in South Vietnam, less heralded, but just as deadly battles, including the ones I was involved in, also took place in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, countries that were friends of America. It was a war during which friends and enemies alike were bombed into oblivion and doused with toxic Agent Orange. It was a war for which the peoples of those countries are still paying the price more than forty years later. It was a war where America's soldiers did their very best given restrictions imposed on them by their leaders in Washington.This is not about a book about my experiences during the Vietnam War. Rather, it is about the tragedy that was the Vietnam War. It is about the tragic and continuing consequences of the war on the civilian populations. It is about the physical and mental affects the war has had on us veterans. And it is about my continuing battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Book excerpt: More than 6,000 New Zealanders served in the Korean War during the early 1950s. Many were volunteer members of Kayforce in search of adventure. Others sailed on the six navy frigates that plied Korean waters as part of the United Nations forces. Forty-five Kiwis lost their lives in this Cold War conflict that, decades later, remains unresolved. But the camaraderie among those who survived continues. Based on in-depth interviews, The War That Never Ended records the memories of 12 of those veterans - gunners, signallers, seamen, a mechanic, dispatch rider, dentist, engineer and official photographer. The men tell intimate and often surprising stories, from the rigours of manning 25-pounder guns to survival in bitter cold; from the horror of lifting mines to the delight of finding puha in the paddy fields. Honest, poignant and sometimes humorous, these unique accounts provide a fascinating snapshot of Kiwi involvement in what has been dubbed 'the forgotten war' - one in which peace has yet to be declared.
Download or read book At War with Civil Rights and Civil Liberties written by Thomas E. Baker and published by Rowman & Littlefield Pub Incorporated. This book was released on 2006 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Two hundred and eleven years ago, Congress proposed and the states ratified the Bill of Rights. Since that time, these rights have been challenged over and over again. The Alien and Sedition Acts, the Civil War, the "Red Scares" during both World Wars, the Cold War and its permanent crisis mentality, the Vietnam era and its civil unrest, and now the War on Terrorism--all are points along a line of contested history and conflict. Each of these crises generated stresses and strains for our constitutional guarantees of civil rights and liberties. This book looks at the War on Terrorism and the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq through the lenses of constitutional law and American politics. A cohesive set of essays by leading legal scholars brings these challenges into sharp focus, offering a unique perspective on executive power, the rule of law, and the delicate balance between rights, liberties, and threats.'--Publisher.
