Summary
"The Vietnam conflict was the first war after which the U.S. government was compelled to account for all of its military personnel. Was this accounting a moral imperative, or was it an expensive and unnecessary proposition that hampered the development of normal relations with Vietnam? Are the Vietnamese warehousing the remains of U.S. soldiers and withholding critical intelligence records that could resolve many MIA cases? Are families of MIAs being misled by the federal government?" "MIAs examines these and other controversial issues surrounding prisoners of war and those missing in action from the Vietnam conflict. Featuring an informative overview of the MIA/POW controversy, this book also includes a chronology covering the period from the Korean War to the present, statistics, source documents, speeches, treaties, and legislation. Readers also will find a directory of organizations and a comprehensive listing of print and electronic sources, including important Internet sites. A glossary and index round out a volume that will prove invaluble to students of political science and military history, as well as veterans' groups, policymakers, and concerned readers."--Jacket
