Product Description

Review

Persuasive and carefully documented, the book does a particularly good job of demonstrating how the juvenile fictional world of Vietnam varies from historical reality....Anyone interested in the Vietnam War, American cultural memory, or contemporary juvenile fiction will find this book a thoughtful reading experience. (CHOICE)

A powerful, in-depth study. (Knowledge Quest)

...an important introduction to the era...clearly presented...recommended for established collections and library school students. (Professional Reviews)

Twenty-eight young adult novels addressing the Vietnam War, published between 1967 and 1997, are discussed in the context of the current culture war between conservatives and progressives to define American values and interpret American history. (Reference and Research Book News)
