The Uncensored War

by Daniel C. Hallin, The Uncensored War Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Uncensored War book, Vietnam was America's most divisive and unsuccessful foreign war. It was also the first to be televised and the first of the modern era fought without military censorship. From the earliest days of the Kennedy-Johnson escalation right up to the American withdrawal, and even today, the media's role in Vietnam has continued to be intensely controversial. The "Uncensored War" gives a richly detailed account of what Americans read and watched about Vietnam. Hallin draws on the complete body of the New York Times coverage from 1961 to 1965, a sample of hundreds of television reports from 1965-73, including television coverage filmed by the Defense Department in the early years of the war, and interviews with many of the journalists who reported it, to give a powerful critique of the conventional wisdom, both conservative and liberal, about the media and Vietnam. Far from being a consistent adversary of government policy in Vietnam, Hallin shows, the media were closely tied to official perspectives throughout the war, though divisions in the government itself and contradictions in its public relations policies caused every administration, at certain times, to lose its ability to "manage" the news effectively. As for television, it neither showed the "literal horror of war," nor did it play a leading role in the collapse of support: it presented a highly idealized picture of the war in the early years, and shifted toward a more critical view only after public unhappiness and elite divisions over the war were well advanced.

Drive On

by Robert J. Dvorchak, Drive On Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Drive On book, At the foxhole level, war imprints an indelible mark that is invisible to historians who focus on commanders at headquarters directing the sweeping movements of troops. A real, raw and fresh perspective is enclosed in this personal journal of what it's like to go through a war. Preserved in writing are the experiences and insights of those in all branches of the service who participated, especially those motivated, dedicated volunteers in the Airborne infantry who endured the hardships of the Sand Box, carried with them a cherished reminder of home and leaned on each other to perform their duty with what Hemingway called grace under pressure. Inclusion in such fellowship must be earned, not bestowed, even for those whose mission was to write it down.

The Press And American Politics

by Richard Dana Davis, The Press And American Politics Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Press And American Politics book, This book analyzes the power of the American print and electronic press in the political process. Davis argues that the press has greater autonomy than at any time in the more than 200 years of U.S. history, but as an intermediary between the government and the governed, its greatest power is to set agendas, not to dictate political opinions on the agenda items. Despite recent gains in autonomy, the electronic media still are less free of government influence than are print media. Part 1 characterizes the news gatherers and the newsmakers. Part 2 describes the evolution of the political role of the media through U.S. history. Part 3 describes how the press treats each of of the three branches of the Federal government. Part 4 deals with coverage of foreign affairs and public policy, and Part 5 with coverage of campaigns and elections. ISBN 0-8013-0153-X: $20.00.

Vietnam An American Ordeal

by George Moss, Vietnam An American Ordeal Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Vietnam An American Ordeal book, Provides a comprehensive narrative history of U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, from the mid-1940s to the mid-1970s, giving full and unbiased treatment. It also discusses why Americans tried so hard to stop the spread of Communism into Indochina. And why they failed. Blending Vietnamese and American political, diplomatic, and military history, this book presents U.S. involvement in southeast Asia as an episode in the forty-year Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. It also points out the French effort to reimpose colonialism on Vietnam. The third edition of History of the Vietnam War has been revised to include an expanded account of the postwar period, leading to the restoration of normal relations between the U.S. and Vietnam on July 11, 1995. It reveals the strong national identity of the Vietnamese people against Kennedy, a committed "Cold Warrior". It also analyzes media coverage of the war and the anti-war movement in the U.S., to demonstrate that neither really turned public opinion against the war.
