Review:

""While many others have examined the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War, no one, to date, has presented as well-researched and well-written examination of the relationship between these two seminal developments as Lucks does in Selma to Saigon. Lucks convincingly argues that the war forced African Americans to 'choose sides' and that by the end of the 1960s the civil rights movement had become yet another casualty of the fight in Southeast Asia. His work should be of interest to a broad range of readers, from scholars of the civil rights movement to a more general audience of readers interested in the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and the 1960s."--Peter B. Levy, author of Civil War on Race Street: The Civil Rights Movement in Cambridge, Maryland" --

""At last, a book that acknowledges the enormous impact of the Cold War on the relationship between the civil rights and peace movements. Reading Daniel Lucks's analysis of how the Vietnam War divided the civil rights movement, one cannot help but consider the profound and lasting consequences of those divisions and the lessons we might learn as we continue the struggle for justice and peace."--Robbie Lieberman, author of The Strangest Dream: Communism, Anticommunism and the U.S. Peace Movement 1945-1963" --

""In Selma to Saigon, Daniel S. Lucks places civil rights leaders' responses to the Vietnam War firmly within the Cold War context, and explores the tragic repercussions of America's disastrous military intervention in Southeast Asia for African Americans. His important book demonstrates the continuing draw of 'The Sixties' on the historical imagination, as well as that turbulent era's complex legacy."--Simon Hall, author of Peace and Freedom: The Civil Rights and Antiwar Movements in the 1960s" --

His important book demonstrates the continuing draw of 'The Sixties' on the historical imagination, as well as that turbulent era's complex legacy." -- Simon Hall, author of Peace and Freedom: The Civil Rights and Antiwar Movements in the 1960s

"A pivotal and much-needed examination of the impact of the war in Vietnam on black America and the civil rights movement. Few wars produced as many ironies and paradoxes, as Lucks demonstrates compellingly and thoughtfully in his analysis and through the voices and actions of the participants, one of whom said, 'I had left one war and came back to fight another one.' That spirit resonated among many who survived and returned to a changed and all-too-familiar America." -- Leon F. Litwack, A. F. and May T. Morrison Professor of American History Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley

"The first full-length treatment of the relationship between the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam War, this extremely well-researched and very readable book should become the standard in its area." -- James E. Westheider, author of "The African American Experience in Vietnam: Brothers In Arms"

"While many others have examined the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War, no one, to date, has presented as well-researched and well-written examination of the relationship between these two seminal developments as Lucks does in "Selma to Saigon." Lucks convincingly argues that the war forced African Americans to 'choose sides' and that by the end of the 1960s the civil rights movement had become yet another casualty of the fight in Southeast Asia. His work should be of interest to a broad range of readers, from scholars of the civil rights movement to a more general audience of readers interested in the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and the 1960s." -- Peter B.

"A superb portrait of a very diffuse movement. Excellent." -- "Choice"

Book Description The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. The civil rights and anti--Vietnam War movements were the two greatest protests of twentieth-century America. The dramatic escalation of U.S. involvement in Vietnam in 1965 took precedence over civil rights legislation, which had dominated White House and congressional attention during the first half of the decade. The two issues became intertwined on January 6, 1966, when the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) became the first civil rights organization to formally oppose the war, protesting the injustice of drafting African Americans to fight for the freedom of the South Vietnamese people when they were still denied basic freedoms at home. Selma to Saigon explores the impact of the Vietnam War on the national civil rights movement. Before the war gained widespread attention, the New Left, the SNCC, and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) worked together to create a biracial alliance with the potential to make significant political and social gains in Washington. Contention over the war, however, exacerbated preexisting generational and ideological tensions that undermined the coalition, and Lucks analyzes the causes and consequences of this disintegration. This powerful narrative illuminates the effects of the Vietnam War on the lives of leaders such as Whitney Young Jr., Stokely Carmichael, Roy Wilkins, Bayard Rustin, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as other activists who faced the threat of the military draft along with race-related discrimination and violence. Providing new insights into the evolution of the civil rights movement, this book fills a significant gap in the literature about one of the most tumultuous periods in American history.
