The Debate over Vietnam, second edition

In the years after World War II, American foreign policy pursued ideals of justice, freedom, and democracy while seeking at the same time national security and the containment of international communism. In The Debate over Vietnam, David Levy examines the bitter national discussion that eventually raged over the propriety, the necessity, and the morality of that involvement.

Reviews

Levy's brief but wide-ranging book offers an overview of the major cultural issues, foreign policy concerns, social movements, and political anxieties that shape debates in the United States surrounding the Vietnam War.

- Journal of American History

Of great practical use for courses which focus on the Vietnam War or on twentieth-century American history... Levy's prose is eminently readable, his focus always clear, the connections between major points always apparent, and his tempo just right. This is a book that could be assigned with confidence that students won't put it down after ten pages of hopeless slogging. Most importantly, students and teachers alike will find it exciting and valuable because it consistently returns... to questions of how and why.

- Matthew C. Stewart - American Studies International

An excellent, elegantly written overview.

- History Today

A well-documented assessment of the elements that explain our involvement and disenchantment with Vietnam.
