Bystanders to the Vietnam War by Ron Goldberg
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Who was most responsible for the Vietnam War? Did President Lyndon Johnson simply continue the policies of his predecessors, Eisenhower and Kennedy, or was he the principal architect? What responsibility did Congress share? Was the Senate a coequal partner in creating the Vietnam policy or a secondary player? Focusing on the U.S. Senate's role in the war, this history records the various senators' views in their own words. The author demonstrates that during the 20-year conflict-as throughout American history-the president was the principal formulator of policy on war and peace, including during the more recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
