David Levy's widely acclaimed Debate Over Vietnam examines the bitter national discussion that raged over the propriety, the necessity, and the morality of America's longest war. Levy begins with a brief history of Vietnam under foreign rule and recounts the growing American military presence--and the increasing reaction it provoked. He explores the fundamental values and assumptions of Americans on both sides of the growing debate, contrasting Republican consensus with Democratic division and the split between intellectuals of the left and right.
In the years after World War II, American foreign policy pursued ideals of justice, freedom, and democracy while seeking at the same time national security and the containment of international communism. In The Debate over Vietnam, David Levy examines the bitter national discussion that eventually raged over the propriety, the necessity, and the morality of that involvement.
