Vietnam, Zinn & Bias
After reading Chapter 18 of Zinn, there are a number of questions related to this that could be helpful in answering, to better understand the content. First, what was the author's purpose and intentions in writing this chapter on the Vietnam War? Secondly, in what significant ways does it differ from the American Pageant text? Is one more reliable than the other? How does point of view and bias affect historical study?
