The anti-Vietnam War movement marked the first time in American history . This is the second book about the Anti-war movement by Melvin Small that I have read.

The anti-Vietnam War movement marked the first time in American history that record numbers marched and protested to an antiwar tune-on college campuses, in neighborhoods, and in Washington. Although it did not create enough pressure on decision-makers to end . involvement in the war, the movement's impact was monumental.

To detail the successes of the antiwar protests, Lawrence S. Wittner’s Rebels against War: The American Peace Movement, 1933-1983 and Charles Chatfield’s The American Peace Movements: Ideals and Activism explore the accomplishments, lasting fervor and motivation of the movement to its objectives.

Melvin Small has taught and lectured about the peace movement for three decades. This is a wonderful book that one can learn a great deal about concerning the nature of the anti-war movement in the 1960s, and the wide variety of people who manned the barricades against the war with such consistency and energy for so long a period of time. I recommend this book.

Hearts and Minds (Vietnam) or winning hearts and minds refers to the strategy and programs used by the governments of Vietnam and the United States during the Vietnam War to win the popular support of the Vietnamese people and to help defeat the Viet.

Hearts and Minds (Vietnam) or winning hearts and minds refers to the strategy and programs used by the governments of Vietnam and the United States during the Vietnam War to win the popular support of the Vietnamese people and to help defeat the Viet Cong insurgency. Pacification is the more formal term for winning hearts and minds. In this case, however, it was also defined as the process of countering the insurgency.

The anti–Vietnam War movement marked the first time in American history that record numbers marched and protested to an antiwar tune―on college campuses, in neighborhoods, and in Washington. Although it did not create enough pressure on decision-makers to end U.S. involvement in the war, the movement's impact was monumental. It served as a major constraint on the government's ability to escalate, played a significant role in President Lyndon B. Johnson's decision in 1968 not to seek another term, and was a factor in the Watergate affair that brought down President Richard Nixon.

At last, the story of the entire antiwar movement from its advent to its dissolution is available in Antiwarriors: The Vietnam War and the Battle for America's Hearts and Minds . Author Melvin Small describes not only the origins and trajectory of the anti–Vietnam War movement in America, but also focuses on the way it affected policy and public opinion and the way it in turn was affected by the government and the media, and, consequently, events in Southeast Asia.

Leading this crusade were outspoken cultural rebels including Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, as passionate about the cause as the music that epitomizes the period. But in addition to radical protestors whose actions fueled intense media coverage, Small reveals that the anti-war movement included a diverse cast of ordinary citizens turned war dissenter: housewives, politicians, suburbanites, clergy members, and the elderly.

The antiwar movement comes to life in this compelling new book that is sure to fascinate all those interested in the Vietnam War and the turbulent, tumultuous 1960s.

From the time I climbed back into civil society from my military duty, I stepped exactly into the vortex of the turmoil and raging debate over the so-called anti-war movement. In this well-written and eminently readable book, author Melvin Small precisely captures the tenor of the times, and recapitulates the ongoing arguments against our misguided and massively tragic military adventure in Southeast Asia in the 1960s. Small is well qualified for such a discussion; as an active academic he has lectured on the subject for over thirty years. He is also a noted author on different aspects of the Vietnam war, having penned several books related to Nixon's prosecution of the war, Johnson's conflicted but ever deepening commitments to the war, and the roles of anti-war doves in the overall history of the war.
Given the fact that the war in Vietnam represented a new milestone for the history of our republic, the first time that an absolute majority of its citizens were actively against the war in one fashion or another, it is an absorbing history that reveals just how such massive public antipathy for the war was either ignored or spun politically by the media and the policymakers in order to continue their active pursuit of the country's war goals. Small carefully describes and explains exactly where the loci of dissent were to be found, and much more importantly, why. For although the revolutionary levels of active opposition to the war never actually ended the war, which dragged on for more than a decade, it did indeed profoundly influence the conduct of the war. From its import in President Johnson's decision not to seek a second term to Nixon's own involvement in the Watergate imbroglio, the political import of the high levels of active dissent to the war played a major part in how the government proceeded to conduct the war, and in the way it was explained and justified publicly.
Another endlessly absorbing aspect to the book is its treatment of the entire anti-war movement itself, tracing it from its origins in the civil rights and free speech movements to its eventual dissolution as the war spun down in the mid 1970s. One of the most amazing things we learn is just how little heed the elected leaders paid to public opinion on the one hand, yet at the same time recognizing the power of public antipathy to the war as a constraint they increasingly had to recognize in their machinations, especially under the Nixon administration, when anti-war views were held to be both unpatriotic and traitorous. Gee, does any of this stuff sound familiar? This is a wonderful book that one can learn a great deal about concerning the nature of the anti-war movement in the 1960s, and the wide variety of people who manned the barricades against the war with such consistency and energy for so long a period of time. I recommend this book. Enjoy!

I'm just getting through the first chapters of this book and it looks to contain lots of good information but clearly seems to have a point of view. So far it is an OK read.
Lanionge
This book was very informative but not as good as "The Battle of Otok" concerning political turmoil of the time.
Saimath
While this book is informative, the author takes great pains to both credit the anti-warriors with helping to end the war, but basically absolve them of any responsibility for causing the Vietnam War to continue and kill more Vietnamese and Americans. They emboldened the North Vietnamese to continue on, end of story.

Anyone who knows history knows that the North Vietnamese attacked American where it would hurt most, that is, the court of public opinion back home. They knew from their experience with the French that no matter the cost, the population of a democratic government will inevitably cause that government to end its participation in a war, no matter how noble the cause seems.

Too bad we’ll never know how many people the anti-warriors killed.
Goldcrusher
The book seems more anecdotal then informative, not a long of through line.
