A Time for Peace

The Legacy of the Vietnam War

Robert D. Schulzinger

Prominent American historian Robert D. Schulzinger sheds light on how deeply etched memories of the devastating conflict in Vietnam have altered America's political, social, and cultural landscape. Schulzinger examines the impact of the war from many angles. He ranges from the heated controversy over soldiers who were missing in action, to the influx of over a million Vietnam refugees into the US, to the many ways the war has continued to be fought in books and films and, perhaps most important, the power of the Vietnam War as a metaphor influencing foreign policy in places like Iraq.
