Summary

This slender volume consists of four presentations on the Vietnam War given as part of the Sears Lecture series at Purdue University. Former Senator George McGovern and General William Westmoreland present rather standard critiques and defenses of American participation in that conflict. In a more scholarly fashion Edward Luttwak and Thomas McCormick examine, respectively, strategic questions and the impact of American hegemony on U.S. policy. The brevity of each lecture prevents the exploration of issues in much depth. Also, there is a jarring difference in the levels of sophistication between the Luttwak and McCormick lectures on the one hand and the McGovern and Westmoreland lectures on the other. Nevertheless, if used in conjunction with a comprehensive text, this is a useful supplementary resource for political science and history students at the undergraduate level.
