America, Vietnam, Sixties

America, Vietnam, and the Sixties: Diplomacy, War, and Social Upheaval
In this course we will study American diplomacy, the Vietnam War, and social changes that occurred in the U.S. between 1954 and 1975. The diplomacy section will focus on US-USSR and US-China relations, as well US-North Vietnamese negotiations. We will examine the conduct of the war from both a strategic perspective and the experiences of fighting men. The section on social change will examine the civil rights, anti-war, and women's liberation movements. We will employ a variety of tools to examine these topics, including works by historians and social scientists, memoirs, fiction, poetry, documentary and feature films, and music.
