By cataloguing the manifold practices that keep the bodies of the absent dead alive, he enables us to understand the nation’s obsession with a political and cultural war it continually invents and reinvents at home and abroad. The Remains of War deserves an important place on the Vietnam War shelf of any library. It also offers some provocative insights on the role of this issue in our culture and on the continued irresolution about what has been the great agony of the Baby Boom generation: the Vietnam War.

Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2005. It is a thesis that Thomas Hawley propounds at several levels
Hawley, Thomas M. (2005). Durham: Duke University Press. According to Hawley, these hyperbolic undertakings - unprecedented in . history - to find every missing body are a way for the . to restore itself to victory after defeat and exercise its leverage in the global arena in its ongoing relations with Vietnam. The absent soldier becomes an innocent victim whose bodily remains need to be repatriated if the . body politic is to restore itself after defeat.
In The Remains of War, political scientist Thomas Hawley relates this paradox to the country's ongoing struggle to understand the divisive conflict. Although the United States labored to find missing soldiers before Vietnam, Hawley shows that the contemporary preoccupation with bodies began during the mid-1960s. Rather than territory occupied, the . military's "body count" became the key measure of progress during the unconventional campaign in Vietnam. When only 591 American prisoners returned in 1973, critics accused the government of abandoning living servicemen. He asserts that associated Department of Defense operations therefore involve more than finding missing soldiers.

Remaking Modernity: Politics, History, And Sociology by Julia Adams. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (e. avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).
