Description
 
Fred Turner (au). Explores the parallels between the healing of Vietnam veterans & Americansí collective recovery from the war. Examines films & novels, as well as political speeches, national monuments, & the backwoods rituals of the menís movement in light of the testimony of traumatized veterans. During the Vietnam War, both soldiers in combat & citizens on the home front witnessed the collapse of the myths on which they had been raised. As they have tried to rebuild those myths over the last 25 years, both traumatized veterans & Americans at large have slipped into complex cycles of denial & recollection. Americans must accept, rather than seek to expunge, their memories of the conflict.
