The Vietnam War and Public Policy

By Melvin Sharp


The Development of U.S. policy on the Vietnam War is a study in public policy analysis. To fully understand the how and why of our involvement in the Vietnam War, we must first understand the basics of public policy - how it is formed, altered and put into effect.

It is vitally important in looking at public policy issues that we examine both the private and the public interests of players. What is left unspoken may be just as important as those things that are publicly professed. In a text-book format this book provides this kind of analysis and method on one of the most pivotal and controversial conflicts in U.S. American history.
