Summary
"This book examines the ways in which the war and its accompanying movements greatly altered traditional American conceptions of masculinity. Finally, the book illustrates how, decades later, the masculine anxieties of the Vietnam era are still evident in discourses ranging from the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to recent presidential campaigns"--Provided by publisher
