Republicans and Vietnam, 1961-1968

Synopsis

"In the first book-length treatment of the subject, Republicans and Vietnam, 1961-1968, Terry Dietz explains how Republican Congressional leaders tried to rationalize their traditional opposition to the spread of Communism with their objections to the ways in which Lyndon Johnson escalated U. S. involvement in Vietnam. He effectively contrasts the different styles of Gerald Ford and Everett Dirkson."
