thesis regarding the legality of United States military intervention in Vietnam
is available HERE
in .pdf format. It is 148 pages long, including appendices, and weighs in
at a rather hefty 14 Mb. Note well that this is the copyrighted property
of the author. However, permission to download and store one copy per
person is hereby granted to individuals who wish to read it. Permission
to reproduce up to 10 pages of the thesis is granted to any person or entity
who wishes to use those pages for any educational purpose whatever, profit
or non-profit, so long as those pages are properly attributed to the author
by using the citation indicated at the end. Any other use of my thesis
is strictly forbidden without my express written consent.
In particular, I commend the thesis to those who wish to learn the critical
background history to United States military involvement in Vietnam.
After all, legal issues cannot be properly considered without a clear understanding
of their historical contexts; hence, the most salient facts are carefully
discussed and documented.
