Galbraith, John Kenneth. HOW TO GET OUT OF VIETNAM: "THE WAR WE CANNOT WIN, SHOULD NOT WISH TO WIN, ARE NOT WINNING". New York City, NY: Signet, 1967. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 45 pages. Fine. Browning of pages. Foxing on white cover .

Essay on subject. Published in an extremely small and limited print run as a softcover pamphlet only. There is no ISBN. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other appearances in published form. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Text by John Kenneth Galbraith. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the great economist/intellectual's incisive analysis of the American involvement in Vietnam, why it was doomed to fail (because no superpower has ever won against an insurgency that has broad popular support), and what should be done that is in the best interest of both the besieged country and America (pull out, implement democratic reforms, minimize corruption, and introduce other economic and political reforms in tandem with an aggressive military offensive that demonstrates America's willingness to show its resolve). Does all this feel like deva ju? It does because America, now the only superpower left, apparently still has not learned the lesson of Vietnam. A classic, this is a "must-have" title for John Kenneth Galbraith collectors. This title has been out-of-print for almost forty years and is now collectible. This is the only copy available online and is in near-fine condition overall: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest intellectual/thinkers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOHN KENNETH GALBRAITH TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). $30.00
