Forty years after the Vietnam War ended, many in the United States still struggle to come to terms with this tumultuous period of U.S. history. The domestic antiwar movement, with cooperation from their Vietnamese counterparts, played a significant role in ending the War, but few have examined its impact until now. In The People Make the Peace, edited by Karin Aguilar-San Juan and Frank Joyce, nine U.S. activists discuss the parts they played in opposing the War at home and their risky travels to Vietnam in the midst of the conflict to engage in people-to-people diplomacy. "The book shatters stereotypes of protesters and shows the activists as thoughtful, courageous and compassionate strategists whose dedication to peaceful diplomacy helped end the war earlier" - Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK. "This collection helps fill in many blanks, adding essential color to the story of this astounding citizens’ movement, especially the remarkable saga of the 1970-71 People’s Peace Treaty. They inspire reflection that America still sorely needs" - Todd Gitlin, Columbia University.
