A pobig eassessmet o a cotovesiallegacy o the Vietam Wa
Agent Orange
Histoy, Sciece, ad the Politics o Ucetaity
Edwin A. Martini
Taking on what one ormer U.S. ambassador called“the last ghost o the Vietnam War,” this book examinesthe ar-reaching impact o Agent Orange, the most ina-mous o the dioxin-contaminated herbicides used byAmerican orces in Southeast Asia. Edwin A. Martini’saim is not simply to reconstruct the history o the“chemical war” but to investigate the ongoing contro-versy over the short- and long-term eects o weapon-ized deoliants on the environment o Vietnam, on thecivilian population, and on the troops who ought onboth sides.Beginning in the early 1960s, when Agent Orangewas rst deployed in Vietnam, Martini ollows thestory across geographical and disciplinary boundaries,looking or answers to a host o still unresolved ques-tions. What did chemical manuacturers and Americanpolicymakers know about the eects o dioxin onhuman beings, and when did they know it? How muchdo scientists and doctors know even today? Should theuse o Agent Orange be considered a orm o chemicalwarare? What can, and should, be done or U.S. veter-ans, Vietnamese victims, and others around the worldwho believe they have medical problems caused byAgent Orange?Martini draws on military records, governmentreports, scientic research, visits to contaminated sites,and interviews to disentangle conficting claims andevaluate oten ambiguous evidence. He shows that theimpact o Agent Orange has been global in its reach. Yetor all the answers it provides, this book also reveals howmuch uncertainty—scientic, medical, legal, and politi-cal—continues to surround the legacy o Agent Orange.
