Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

"Gilbert's work is essential for those who want some of the best scholarship on the subject and who are serious in presenting as much of the truth about Vietnam as course time permits."-Journal of Third World Studies

"This book is tightly organized around its theme: the teaching of the war....The wealth of material here, including 56 pages of appendices, should be welcomed by any scholar and teacher of the Vietnam War."-Journal of Third World Studies

"This is a book that deserves to be reprinted regularly.... it is useful for its variety of approach, its accuracy, and its authority. What is perhaps most worthwhile about it, though, is its ideological balance. There are chapters about both sides of the conflict--non-American perspectives are not ignored as is usually the case--and the various teachers doing the writing afford a degree of dignity and pedagogical authority to the subject of Viet Nam War Studies. . . . This is a fine and worthy text."-Journal of American Culture
