Allen analyzes the effects that activism by POW and MIA families had on U.S. politics before and after the Vietnam War's official end. He argues that POW/MIA activism prolonged the hostility between the United States and Vietnam even as the search for the missing became the basis for closer ties between the two countries in the 1990s. Equally important, he explains, POW/MIA families' disdain for the antiwar left and contempt for federal authority fueled the conservative ascendancy after 1968.
