Publisher Comments:

The antiVietnam War movement marked the first time in American history that record numbers marched and protested to an antiwar tuneon college campuses, in neighborhoods, and in Washington. Although it did not create enough pressure on decision-makers to end U.S. involvement in the war, the movement's impact was monumental. In Antiwarriors, author Melvin Small describes not only the origins and trajectory of the antiVietnam War movement in America, but also focuses on the way it affected policy and public opinion and the way it in turn was affected by the government and the media, and, consequently, events in Southeast Asia. The antiwar movement comes to life in this compelling new book that is sure to fascinate all those interested in the Vietnam War and the turbulent, tumultuous 1960s.
