Description: Definitive and authoritative, The Vietnam Reader is a groundbreaking collection of the finest fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, film, still photographs, and popular song lyrics depicting the American war in Vietnam. All the strongest work is here, from mainstream bestsellers to radical poetry, from Tim O'Brien, David Halberstam, and Philip Caputo, to Bruce Springsteen and Marvin Gaye. Featuring a glossary, filmography, map, bibliography, and a chronology of the war, in addition to an incisive reader's guide and provocative discussion questions, this all-inclusive volume makes a vital contribution to a wider understanding of the Vietnam War.

Madison Smartt Bell called Stewart O'Nan's novel about Vietnam, The Names of the Dead, "as committed and convincing as any Vietnam story, perhaps as any war fiction, ever written". Too young to have served, O'Nan achieved the verisimilitude of the novel through an extensive reading of works by those who had served. The depth of that research grew into the author's enormously popular Trinity College course on the literature of Vietnam, which, in turn, drew his attention to the fact that there was an entire generation of young people, many of them the children of Vietnam vets, who had no single, comprehensive reference to consult for an in-depth understanding of that conflict.

Essential reading for students, educators, and anyone who wants to know more about the war that changed the face of late twentieth-century America, The Vietnam Reader is an indispensable volume, already destined to become a classic.
