This book offers a sane and reasoned analysis of America's involvement in Vietnam and a series of suggestions for a political rather than a military solution. The Pulitzer Prize winning historian addresses the wider implications of the Russo-Chines split for American policy, the potential impact of the war in Vietnam on civil freedom in the United States, and the uses of history as a means of prediction.
