Gr 7-9-This capsule history of the U.S. involvement in Vietnam focuses on the broad-based protest that slowly grew out of America's military and political failures in Indochina. Very superficial in its coverage, the book mentions the My Lai massacre but doesn't discuss how it affected the American home front (other than that many people were "shocked") or how the American government reacted to it. The author also fails to discuss the various acts of civil disobedience such as protesters refusing to pay taxes during the war. And, although McCormick briefly discusses marches and other activities against the backdrop of the `60s counterculture, she doesn't mention their place in the history of American protest movements. Black-and-white photos and boxed source documents that include quotes and an FBI record appear throughout. While the outline history of the war is generally accurate and unbiased, many other recently published books offer comparable coverage. A serviceable supplement to more complete treatments of the subject.-Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego
