The Meaning of the Vietnam War
It's perhaps the most important question of America’s past half century:
Why did we go to war in Vietnam? In this Olin Lecture, Cornell History Professor
Fredrik Logevall, one of the world's leading scholars of the war, considers U.S.
intervention anew, drawing from his Pulitzer Prize-winning new book, Embers
of War. Logevall will pay particular attention to the views and decisions of
John F. Kennedy, in this the 50th anniversary year of the Dallas assassination.
He'll also examine the lessons of the war for Americans today.
The 2013 Olin speaker is Professor Fredrik Logevall, the John S.
Knight Professor of International Studies and Professor of History at Cornell,
where he serves as director of the Mario Einaudi Center for International
Studies. On July 1, 2013, he will become Cornell’s vice provost for
His most recent book is Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the
Making of America’s Vietnam (Random House, 2012), which won the Pulitzer
Prize in History and was named a best book of the year by the Washington
Post and the Christian Science Monitor.
A former Leverhulme Professor at the University of Nottingham and Mellon Senior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, Logevall has also taught at Yale University and the University of California, Santa Barbara.
