McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
In a talk based on his new book, Vietnam’s Second Front: Domestic Politics, the Republican Party, and the War, Andrew L. Johns assesses the influence of the Republican Party – its congressional leadership, politicians, grassroots organizations, and the Nixon administration – on the escalation, prosecution, and resolution of the Vietnam War. Dr. Andrew Johns’ research and teaching focuses on the history of U.S. foreign relations, with an emphasis on the Cold War and the nexus of foreign policy and domestic politics.
