Series Rethinking World Politics

Looking back from a 21st century, post cold-war, vantage point, John Dumbrell provides a broad-ranging and sober reassessment of the Vietnam war and its political and historical significance for America, Vietnam itself, their allies, the region and the world. While concluding that America clearly did lose the war, the author re-examines recurrent myths and assumptions (for example about US public opinion and media coverage) and highlights areas of dispute still outstanding today.

JOHN DUMBRELL is Professor of Government at Durham University, UK.
