Demonstrating that the antiwar movement was of little value and even helped--inadvertently--to prolong the carnage of the Vietnam War, a critique sets a new standard for discussion of the movement and describes its continuing role in contemporary America.
Garfinkle (Foreign Policy Research Institute, Philadelphia) takes readers on a journey from the 1960s to the 1990s, searching out Vietnam as a metaphor, template, memory, and icon. He argues that the antiwar movement had marginal impact on limiting and ending the war, yet has had an underestimated postwar influence, and explores Vietnam as metaphor in the Kuwait crisis.
