Gordon Goldstein, author

Lecture and book signing

As national security adviser for Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, McGeorge Bundy was one of the principal architects of the Vietnam War, pushing for escalation while others called for restraint. Several decades later, Bundy began to reexamine his decisions, collaborating with Gordon Goldstein on a book shelved following Bundy’s death in 1996. Now, over a decade later, Goldstein has revisited the enduring historical debate over Vietnam, using Bundy’s own insights to analyze America’s entanglement in the war and how events might have transpired differently.
