Vietnam: the war & its history

SAME AS EAST-UA 737.

This course focuses on the American War in Vietnam – its origins, development and the ways it was fought. It examines how and why American geo-political and military strategies led to, and shaped, the course of the war. Historical accounts will be regularly supplemented with a reading of parts of the Pentagon Papers and an oral history of those involved in the Vietnam War as told from all sides. Each weekly class will combine some lecturing with extensive discussions of the assigned readings and audio-visual materials.
