Description
David Harris was the most famous draft resister of the Vietnam War. A former student body president of Stanford University, he refused to accept induction and be sent to Vietnam. He spent nearly two years in a federal prison as a consequence. With his marriage to Joan Baez, he emerged as the leading moral voice of his generation. For the past two decades, he has largely remained silent as the anitwar movement he led stood accused by critics and pundits of everything from cowardice to frivolity. Now, in Our War, he speaks out in defense of a generation torn by the most divisive war in America's history. Neither a history nor a memoir, though containing aspects of both, Our War is a compelling, even fevered account of stalking the war's moral shadow through the decades since its ignominious end. This is a one-of-a-kind look at who we were, what we did, why we did it, and what those actions made us, seen through the eyes of a unique and significant American figure and one of our most gifted writers.
