Product Description

The editors present ten essays revisiting "Legal and Policy Issues of the Indochina War," which was also the title of the U. of Virginia Law School seminar from which eight of the ten originated. The papers were selected, say the editors, for their contributions to the literature and for their use of primary sources. In turn, the first six papers explore the reasons for the Kennedy administration's complicity in the overthrow of Ngo Dinh Diem; argue that US involvement in Vietnam preserved global democratic security; seek to debunk the "myth" that Nixon and Diem's successor, Nguyen Van Thieu, sabotaged the 1973 Paris Peace Accords; analyze Cambodia's Khmer Rouge (and its ideology in a separate paper); and examine the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia. The next three papers discuss legal issues, including the legal advice given to US decisions makers at the start of the war, the contemporary lessons for naval interception operations that can be taken from the war, and how the law of command responsibility was reshaped in the wake of the My Lai massacre. The final pair of essays looks at the silencing of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as a prime cause for the policy failure of the war and the US intervention in Somalia as a reprise of the mistakes of the Vietnam War.
