Against the Vietnam War : writings by activists

The protest movement in opposition to the Vietnam War was a complex amalgam of political, social, economic, and cultural motivations, factors, and events. This work brings together the different facets of that movement and its various shades of opinion. It includes essays by Noam Chomsky, Staughton Lynd, Martin Luther King, among others.
