What path led Americans to Vietnam? Why and how did the United States become involved in this conflict? Drawing on materials from published and unpublished sources in America and Great Britain, historian Andrew Rotter uncovers and analyzes the surprisingly complex reasons for America's fateful decision to provide economic and military aid to the nations of Southeast Asia in May 1950.

Andrew J. Rotter is Professor of History at Colgate University. His previous books include The Path to Vietnam: Origins of the American Commitment to Southeast Asia, from Cornell.

Editorial Reviews

"With original research and new insights, Andrew Rotter's work succeeds in placing the initial U.S. commitment to Vietnam in a larger and most instructive context. One of the most important books about the conflict to appear in recent years."

- Walter LaFeber, Cornell University
