H. Bruce Franklin on Vietnam and Other American Fantasies

Irvine -- History and Memory will the be theme of a KUCI interview Wednesday with the author of a new book, Vietnam and Other American Fantasies.

Rutgers English Prof. H. Bruce Franklin discusses myths about the Vietnam War and what we may have forgotten about the anti-war movement and the alternative press in changing U.S. society.

Franklin, whose outspokenness cost him a Stanford professorship, delves in his new book (from University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Press) about the intricacies of social protest, as in how a community mobilized against the production of napalm for use in Vietnam.

Franklin is interviewed by Subversity show host Dan Tsang on Wednesday, January 17 from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, California. The show is simultaneously Web-cast via

The show is the latest in a series of interviews with authors of new books about Vietnam. Last month, we interviewed William J. Duiker, author of "Ho Chi Minh." Last week, we interviewed A.J. Langguth, author of "Our Vietnam." Both books were listed as one of the best nonfiction titles of 2000 by the Los Angeles Times.

NOTE: The following week, Subversity moves to a new day and time. Starting on January 23, a Tuesday, Subversity will air from 4-5 p.m. on KUCI. Thank you for listening.
