For my project I could not pick just one valueable secondary source. I have a couple that are all equal in importance to my research. The list includes Aid and Comfort by Henry Mark Holzer and Ericka Holzer, Camp All-American, Hanoi Jane, and the High-and-Tight: Gender, Folklore, and Changing Military Culture by Carol Burke, A Political Biography of an Antiwar Icon: Jane Fonda’s War by Mary Hershberger, and Nixonland by Rick Perlstein. These books are all very useful because they address what happened while Jane Fonda visited Hanoi and the responses that came because of the trip.
In Burke’s book, she addresses the reason why people hated Jane was because she was a woman that voiced a different opinion. She was too outspoken for her time. The Holzer’s book takes a legal standpoint on what happened in Hanoi and why there was enough evidence to take her to trial. Hershberger’s book, Jane Fonda’s War, looks at what happened in Hanoi and how people responded to it in a negative way. And Nixonland, looks at the Nixon Administration and how it handled anti-war protestors and Jane Fonda’s activism.
All of these sources are very useful to my research because they allow me to have more than one view on my topic. They discuss why Fonda is believed to be a traitor and why people have responded to her the way they have. They either feel threatned because she is a woman or they feel a deep sense of betrayal coming from America
