HIS* 227: The Vietnam War

3 Credits
(Formerly HIST 227)
This course will analyze the history of America’s role in Vietnam from 1945 to 1975. To understand the Vietnam War, however, broad themes must be assessed such as the history and culture of Vietnam, the rise of the Third World, and the impact of the Cold War on U.S. Vietnam policy. Other important issues that will be discussed include the importance of domestic affairs on the Vietnam War, the U.S. Military’s role in the war, and the world-view of U.S. Presidents as diverse as Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson. Because the war has produced a long-lasting legacy on American culture, the post Vietnam War years will also be examined in detail. How the last three decades of politics, music, film, and literature have been influenced by the Vietnam War will be subject of in-depth analysis.
Prerequisites: Eligibility for ENG* 101 .
Offered: Occasionally
