Agent Orange: History, Science and the Politics of Uncertainty

By Edwin Martini (October 2012)

Taking on what one former U.S. ambassador called the last ghost of the Vietnam War, this book examines the far-reaching impact of Agent Orange, the most infamous of the dioxin-contaminated herbicides used by American forces in Southeast Asia. Edwin A. Martini s aim is not simply to reconstruct the history of the chemical war but to investigate the ongoing controversy over the short- and long-term effects of weaponized defoliants on the environment of Vietnam, on the civilian population, and on the troops who fought on both sides.
