9780737704990: Presidents and Their Decisions: Lyndon B. Johnson

Leading a nation that had been devastated by the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, Johnson fought for civil rights and waged a "war on poverty" with his Great Society legislation. However, as a result of his failure to end U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war, Johnson chose not to run for reelection in 1968. His successes and failures as president are examined in this anthology.

Review:

"The titles in the new Presidents and Their Decisions series begin with a balanced introductory essay on a president's life and the controversies that surrounded him while he was in office. Then each of the major issues is explored in essays that attack or defend the administration's policy . The selections, which appeared during or not long after the event were written by a largely familiar cast of Washington pundits and players, are drawn from a variety of sources - magazine articles, think-tank papers and books."
-- Booklist (Febraury 2001) (Booklist 20010215)

"Each section includes four or five viewpoints, most of which are excerpts from scholarly texts or memoirs. The writers range across the political spectrum and although this is not precisely an opposing-viewpoints format, readers do see a variety of opinions and they are encouraged to draw their own conclusions."
-- School Library Journal (March 2001) (School Library Journal 20010301)
