It demonstrates with detailed archival sources how three administrations refused to consider the arguments of the central critic of the war who proved that the war should never have been fought because Vietnam was never a vital American security interest. That critic, Hans J. Morgenthau, is the centerpiece of this study who participated in the teach-in movement, wrote articles, engaged in public debate in the attempt to prevent the impending tragedy in Vietnam.  show more
