"A brilliant reinterpretation of the Vietnam War, showing how it continues to infect the political imagination of America.  Of particular value is Franklin's unique capacity to link the fantasies of science fiction with the construction of grotesque political myths.  At a time when the mainstream is struggling to put a silver lining around the collective memory of the Vietnam War, this book is indispensable."          --Richard Falk, Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law  and Practice, Princeton University

"Wonderfully written, deeply researched, and insightfully argued."
--Christian Appy, author of  Working Class War: American Combat Soldiers in Vietnam
                                                                                 
"What marks this provocative and engaging book is H. Bruce Franklin's steadfast resistance to a society that takes 'plausible deniability' as its first principle.  The range of subjects considered, Franklin's clear-headed analysis, and his impressive knowledge all make this an important contribution.
--Marilyn Young, author of  The Vietnam Wars, 1945-1990
