Abstract

Jeffords (English, Washington) argues that the popular representations of the Vietnam war, both during and after, demonstrate the pervasiveness of patriarchal values in the US and the primacy of gender, rather than class or race, in defining social relations. Draws on speeches, books, movies, and other war literature.
