The Vietnam Wars Reconsidered

Department of International History Annual Lecture


With the outpouring of scholarship on the Vietnam Wars in recent years, it's time to take stock and reconsider two core questions: why did the wars happen, and why did two Western powers, first France and then the United States, fail in their efforts? In this lecture historian Fredrik Logevall will offer his analysis, while also contemplating the meaning of the war for our own time.

Fredrik Logevall is the Stephen and Madeline Anbinder Professor of History at Cornell University. His most recent book is Embers of War: The Fall of An Empire and the Making of America's Vietnam, which received the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for History.

Janet Hartley is Professor of International History at LSE.
