The Vietnam War

An International History in Documents

Assoc. Professor Mark Atwood Lawrence

  • Places the Vietnam War in a broad, international context.
  • Includes material not just from the U.S., but from other countries involved in the war, especially North and South Vietnam.
  • Includes documents from the early days of Vietnamese nationalism to debates over the lessons and legacies of the war in the 21st century.
  • Includes a wide array of sources: diplomatic documents, social and cultural commentary, memoirs, cartoons, posters, and photos - blending "classics" with more obscure documents.
  • Sets the American war in Vietnam in a broad chronological frame.
  • Can be used in conjunction with Mark Lawrence's successful The Vietnam War: A Concise International History or as a stand-alone text.
