Summary
"In the midst of the Vietnam War, two titans of the Senate, J. William Fulbright and John C. Stennis, held public hearings to debate the conflict's future. In this new work, historian Joseph A. Fry provides the first comparative analysis of these inquiries and the senior southern senators who led them." "Fry details the dramatic confrontations between the Senate committees and the administration spokesmen, Dean Rusk and Robert McNamara, and he probes the success of congressional efforts to influence Vietnam policy. Ultimately, Fry shows how the Fulbright and Stennis hearings provide insight into the debate over why the United States was involved in Vietnam and how the war should have been conducted."--Jacket
