Editorial Reviews


"At the same time that the dangerous war was being fought in the jungles of Vietnam, Campus Wars were being fought in the United States by antiwar protesters. Kenneth J. Heineman found that the campus peace campaign was first spurred at state universities rather than at the big-name colleges. His useful book examines the outside forces, like military contracts and local communities, that led to antiwar protests on campus." --Herbert Mitgang, The New York Times"Shedding light on the drastic change in the social and cultural roles of campus life, Campus Wars looks at the way in which the campus peace campaign took hold and became a national movement." --History Today "Heineman's prodigious research in a variety of sources allows him to deal with matters of class, gender, and religion, as well as ideology. He convincingly demonstrates that, just as state universities represented the heartland of America, so their student protest movements illustrated the real depth of the anguish over US involvement in Vietnam. Highly recommended." --Choice "Represents an enormous amount of labor and fills many gaps in our knowledge of the anti-war movement and the student left." --Irwin Unger, author of These United States

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought the book presented my role at SUNY Buffalo fairly accurately. I especially enjoyed the ethnic and class analysis of the participants. Like the war scenes in "Saving Private Ryan", when you are in the midst of battle it is sometimes hard to see all the events happening around you. The reconstruction of the SUNYAB events from archives must have been quite an undertaking.
Actually, although there may have been a "Youth Against War and Fascism" associated with Ed Wolkenstein and the CP, the one I was involved in was associated with the old and new left of the Marcyite faction called Workers World Party (WWP) that was a break off from the Socialist Workers Party (Trotskyist). In Buffalo it was associated with old leftists Ed and Jeanette Merrill not Ed Wolkenstein. The rest is accurate, including my expulsion from YAWF as mentioned in the last chapter.
More time should have been devoted to the case of Martin Sostre which was of great interest to the Buffalo Nine. The section about the Black riots in Buffalo would be improved with more research and coverage of this important firgure, a bookstore owner, who was championed by Amnesty International.
