Greasewood Pr. Hardcover. 0964975955 Good condition, cover has some wear, might have some writings. . Good., Greasewood Pr, "Dereliction of Duty makes a unique, groundbreaking contribution toward clarifying what happened, why, and who was responsible for the decisions that led to direct U.S. military intervention in the Vietnam War.  Based on more than five years of painstaking research, it includes startling revelations from previously classified transcripts of crucial meetings, many of which were obtained by the author through the Freedom of Information Act; tapes of private telephone conversations; exclusive access to personal diaries; interviews with participants; and oral histories.The result is an inescapable correction to the prevailing view that an American war in Vietnam was inevitable.  The book follows step-by-step the series of developments and secret decisions made in Washington between November 1963 and July 1965 to intensify the American military commitment in Southeast Asia.  And it reveals that the disaster that followed was not caused by impersonal forces but by uniquely human failures at theighest levels of the U.S. government:  arrogance, weakness, lying in the pursuit of self-interest, and above all, the abdication of responsibility to the American people.The roles played by the president's closet advisers--McGeorge Bundy, Dean Rusk, George Ball< Maxwell Taylor, and especially Robert McNamara--in the decisions to escalate American involvement are central  to the story.  And the reasons behind those decisions---now exposed--challenge McNamara's claim that American policy makers were prisoners of the ideology of the containment of Communism and therefore should be absolved of responsibility for the final outcome.  The book also reveals for the first time how the virtual exclusion of the Joint Chefs of Staff from the decision-making process exacerbated the problem.Based on dramatic and irrefutable evidence, Dereliction of Duty proves that the war in Vietnam was not lost in the field, on the front pages of theNew York Times, or on college campuses.  It was lost in Washington, D.Cc., even before the U.S. military assumed sole responsibility for the fighting in 1965 and before Congress and the American people realized the country was at war; indeed, even bewfore the first American units were deployed.", HarperCollins Publishers, Inc, 1997, Bedford/St. Martin's. Paperback. GOOD. Gently used may contain ex-library markings, possibly has some light highlighting, textual notations, and or underlining. Text is still easily readable., Bedford/St. Martin's
