This collection of fiction, poetry and personal narrative from the movements against the American war in Viet Nam was compiled and published because so many professors complained to our staff that they could not find an anthology of literature about the antiwar movement. Editor Sandra Gurvis cast her net wide and assembled a stunning group of writers. The pieces focus on issues of race, gender, and class. American women writers are particularly well represented.
