?Gilbert has brought together a collection of articles, bibliographies, and syllabi that college and high school instructors will find useful. He and 11 other scholars, including Larry E. Cable and Cecil B. Currey, consider ways to teach about such subjects as the air war, wars of national liberation, decision making, literature and films, and veterans' issues. Most of the articles include lengthy annotated bibliographies or detailed discussions of primary and secondary sources. Some of the materials presented, particularly those that deal with Vietnamese history, will be new even to those already teaching about the war. Moreover, the author's suggestions for how to use certain books and films and how to organize courses on the war around intellectually sound yet provocative themes are valuable.?-Choice
