A time for war : the United States and Vietnam, 1941-1975 by Robert D Schulzinger( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 1,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Time for War, Schulzinger paints a vast yet intricate canvas of more than three decades of conflict in Vietnam, from the first rumblings of rebellion against the French colonialists to the American intervention and eventual withdrawal. His comprehensive narrative incorporates every aspect of the warfrom the military (as seen in his brisk account of the French failure at Dienbienphu) to the economic (such as the wage increase sparked by the draft in the United States) to the political. Drawing on massive research, he offers a vivid and insightful portrait of the changes in Vietnamese politics and society, from the rise of Ho Chi Minh, to the division of the country, to the struggles between South Vietnamese president Diem and heavily armed religious sects, to the infighting and corruption that plagued Saigon. Schulzinger reveals precisely how outside powers - first the French, then the Americans - committed themselves to war in Indochina, even against their own better judgment. Roosevelt, for example, derided the French efforts to reassert their colonial control after World War II, yet Truman, Eisenhower, and their advisers gradually came to believe that Vietnam was central to American interests. The author's account of Johnson is particularly telling and tragic, describing how the president would voice clear-headed, even prescient warnings about the dangers of intervention - then change his mind, committing America's prestige and military might to supporting a corrupt, unpopular regime. Schlzinger offers sharp criticism of the American military effort, and provides a fascinating look inside the Nixon White House, showing how the Republican president dragged out the war long past the point when he realized that the United States could not win. Finally, Schulzinger paints a brilliant political and social portrait of the times, illuminating the impact of the war on the lives of ordinary Americans and Vietnamese. Schulzinger shows what the war was like for a common soldier, an American nurse, a navy flyer, a conscript in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, a Vietcong fighter, or an antiwar protester

"Long admired as the most comprehensive and accessible survey available, this fourth edition of U.S. Diplomacy Since 1900, formerly entitled American Diplomacy in the Twentieth Century, has been completely revised and updated. Beginning with the Spanish American War and ending with the coming century, the book explains how Americans have thought about foreign affairs over the course of the twentieth century, noting both the changes and continuity of American foreign relations from the turn of the century up through the post-Cold War era." "Updated to include the first Clinton administration, this new edition provides balanced coverage of both the Clinton and Bush administrations' efforts to deal with the extraordinary changes in international affairs after the Cold War. The first chapter, "The Setting of American Foreign Policy," has been completely revised, and a new concluding chapter, entitled "Toward the Twenty-First Century," discusses American foreign relations after the Cold War. A revised section on the Reagan administration has also been included and a completely updated selected bibliography provides students with a current guide to the best and the latest scholarship available on U.S. foreign policy."--BOOK JACKET
