The first Viet Nam Generation, Inc. anthology, this is a diverse collection of articles which represents the interdisciplinary nature of the field of Viet Nam war studies. Over the years it has been one of our most popular texts. Readers particularly appreciate Ben Kiernan's thoughtful article on the results of the U.S. bombing of Cambodia, and David Berman's overview of high school textbook presentations of the Viet Nam war. Harry Haines' essay on the Viet Nam veteran's memorial wall has become a classic. And Larry Lee Rottmann's diary and photographs of his return trip to Viet Nam are important in light of his later, more widely-known writings about contemporary Viet Nam. The Future of the Past is an excellent supplement to the standard texts on the Viet Nam war.
