9780253214959: Long Time Passing: Vietnam and the Haunted Generation
Review:

"Any approach to the subject of Vietnam's aftermath must begin with Myra MacPherson's groundbreaking book... Her book, among the first to break the long national silence on the war, remains one of the most moving and important works on the Vietnam bookshelf." -Arnold R. Isaacs, author of Vietnam Shadows "A haunting chorus of voices, a moving deeply disturbing evocation of an era." --San Francisco Chronicle "Myra MacPherson's book belongs with the best of the works on Vietnam, and there has been no better body of war literature that I know of." --Joseph Heller "A brilliant and necessary book ... this stunning depiction of Vietnam's bitter fruit is calculated to agitate even the most complacent American." --Philadelphia Inquirer "There have been many books on the Vietnam War, but few have captured its second life as memory better than Long Time Passing." --Washington Post Book World "A brilliant evocation of what Vietnam meant and what it did--not just to the veterans who fought it, but to all Americans who lived through it. This is a moving story full of light and darkness, tears and triumph, and I hope it will be read by everyone touched by that strange and painful war." --Senator Edward M. Kennedy "A most perceptive and fascinating account of the continuing impact of the Vietnam experience ... As this important book makes clear, we will be paying the costs for Vietnam for long years to come. Myra MacPherson not only lived through the Vietnam years, she writes with the insight of one still deeply caught up in the issues of that tragedy." --Senator George McGovern "An extraordinary book that is at the same time valuable and disturbing-disturbing because it captures the unexpected complexity and diversity of the Vietnam generation and valuable precisely because in doing so it breaks the stereotypes which too long clouded our understanding of both those who served and those who did not." --Col. Harry G. Summers, Jr., author of On Strategy "Enthralling reading ... full of deep and strong emotions." --New York Times

From the Publisher:

This new edition of a classic book on the impact of the Vietnam War on Americans reintroduces the haunted voices of the Vietnam era to a new generation of readers. In a new introduction, Myra MacPherson reports on the legacy of the war and its impact on contemporary political life, interviews a number of her principal characters to bring their stories up to date, and reflects on what has changed, and what hasn't, for the haunted generation in the years since these interviews were conducted.
