From city streets to congressional corridors: insights from the US anti-war movement (PLA 43)
Reflecting on the anti-war lobby during the Vietnam war, the author puts both the war and peace movement in context, and shows how widespread public disapproval was at first ignored but eventually led to political involvement and action. He then goes on to suggest what lessons have been learned from this important period in history.
