Draft Resistance in the Vietnam Era
My research has shown that in all three areas (
of men who resisted the draft,
of draft evasion used, and
reasons for resisting
the draft) the experience of the young men who resisted the draft in the
1960's was profoundly different from that of resisters in previous wars in
the 20th century. The motivating forces for young men moved from the
tenets of organized religion to the philosophies of personal morality and
the methods of resistance expanded accordingly.
