This is a concise and accessible introduction to the Vietnam war. Books in this Seminar Studies in History series bridge the gap between textbook and specialist survey and consists of a brief "Introduction" and/or "Background" to the subject, valuable in bringing the reader up-to-speed on the area being examined, followed by a substantial and authoritative section of "Analysis" focusing on the main themes and issues. There is a succinct "Assessment" of the subject, a generous selection of "Documents" and a detailed bibliography. Begins by exploring the origins of the conflict and then focuses on the war itself, taking the story through to 1975 and North Vietnam's victory. MARKET For those interested in US History, the Vietnam War or Southeast Asian history.
