Academic Year Hours
This guide was created for the course taught in Fall-2009
Students in this course will gain a basic understanding of the intertwined histories of Vietnam and the United States, including: the rise of Vietnamese nationalism and communism; leadership (particularly that of Ho Chi Minh), organization, and tactics of the Vietnamese revolutionary movement, the international politics of the Cold War; war in Vietnam from 1945-75; and the long-term consequences of the war on American and Vietnamese societies and on the international community. The course is based on extensive readings, lectures and discussion, films, guest speakers, and on the use of the IU library and the World Wide Web.
What is a primary document? A tutorial from University of California-Irvine explains primary source. Here is an excellent LibGuide from San Francisco State University.
