In addition to Corey's learned run-through of the relevant bibliography,
another new book comes to mind that I should have mentioned yesterday:
Darrell Y. Hamamoto, MONITORED PERIL (U of Minnesota Press). This book is
brand new. It mainly focuses on television portrayals, but also includes
discussion of Vietnam films, too.
