Contrary to common interpretations of the Vietnam conflict as an unhealed national wound or trauma, this work argues that, if anything, Americans have assimilated the war and its violence rather too well and that they were able to do so even when the war was at its height.

In Interdisciplinary Courses and Team Teaching: New Arrangements for Learning, James R. Davis explains the benefits and pitfalls of interdisciplinary, team-taught courses and provides current, practical information on how to design and conduct them. Using examples from existing courses, he presents a convincing argument that team-taught, interdisciplinary classes are an improvement over the traditional disciplinary structure. Dr. Davis uses these examples to construct an "ideal" template for college teachers and administrators interested in implementing this innovative teaching method. Dr. Davis includes a listing of nearly 100 interdisciplinary, team-taught courses currently being offered at colleges and universities in North America. The course entries are arranged by general categories, such as general education, women's and gender studies, professional and technical programs, and electives. Each entry includes course title, offering institution, intended audience, disciplines, personnel, a general description, distinctive features, and a contact person with address and phone/fax numbers.

The complete text of the bestselling narrative history of the Vietnam War—based on the celebrated PBS television series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick More than forty years have passed since the end of the Vietnam War, but its memory continues to loom large in the national psyche. In this intimate history, Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns have crafted a fresh and insightful account of the long and brutal conflict that reunited Vietnam while dividing the United States as nothing else had since the Civil War. From the Gulf of Tonkin and the Tet Offensive to Hamburger Hill and the fall of Saigon, Ward and Burns trace the conflict that dogged three American presidents and their advisers. But most of the voices that echo from these pages belong to less exalted men and women—those who fought in the war as well as those who fought against it, both victims and victors—willing for the first time to share their memories of Vietnam as it really was. A magisterial tour de force, The Vietnam War is an engrossing history of America’s least-understood conflict.
