The study seeks to achieve three major goals. First, it attempts to describe the infrastructure of the Communist-dominated insurgency in South Vietnam which evolved during the period 1954-1965. Second, in the light of the organizational composition of that movement, it analyzes the strategy pursued by the insurgents on the political, sociopsychological, economic, and paramilitary levels in their effort to displace the formal government of the country with the agencies of a new administrative structure upon which a future totalitarian regime might be constructed. Last, the study attempts to place the more conventionally military content of the conflict in context by examining it in terms of the spectrum of organizations and highly varied activities which collectively constitute the reality of the threat that has been generated in the course of the last decade.
