9780143128342: American Reckoning: The Vietnam War and Our National Identity

How did the Vietnam War change the way Americans think of themselves as a people and a nation? Christian G. Appy, author of the widely praised oral history of the Vietnam War Patriots, now examines the relationship between the war's realities and myths and its impact on the US's national identity, conscience, pride, shame, popular culture and postwar foreign policy. Drawing on a vast variety of sources from movies, songs and novels to official documents, media coverage and contemporary commentary, Appy offers an original interpretation of the war.
