And I have never denied it. Because to heal and to build in support of something worthy is, I believe, a noble task. In the region of the country where I have spent my life, where brother was once divided against brother, this lesson has been burned deep into my memory." ~Lyndon Baines Johnson Chicago, April 1, 1968 ~Some of the forty~seven Presidential speeches in this book have already made history. Others are destined to. None will be forgotten. Together with the ten essays that accompany them, they present the Johnson Administration in action from November, 1963, to April 1, 1968. They also paint a portrait of perhaps the most energetic President we have ever had. Not one of the ten men who have contributed essays on various aspects of the current Administration sees the President in the same light as his distinguished colleagues except in one respect~ since assuming office, Lyndon Baines Johnson has incontrovertibly made things happen at a rate unprecedented in our annals. To James MacGregor Burns, who selected these speeches, President Johnson's "systems approach" to domestic problems distinguishes him from his predecessors. Walter W. Heller sees the President as responsible for the "new activism" in economics, while for Howard K. Smith, "his outstanding ingrained sentiment has been a hatred of racial bigotry in his inmost being." According to Eric Hoffer, the President is "one of us," the man in the street whose common sense and judgment fate has chosen as its instruments. McGeorge Bundy believes that it is "the happy congruence between . national necessity and Lyndon Johnson's own sense of human priorities" upon which his reputation will ultimately be based. Ralph Ellison sees the President as a man large enough to transcend his caste for the sake of the nation and the dignity of his office. Chester Bowles, David E. Lilienthal, Eugene V. Rostow and Stewart L. Udall add their assessments of the President's performance in the wide and varied spheres of his Administration's concerns, and theirs. The result is a book that provides a multifaceted view of a nation on the move and of the man who guides its course. Bookseller Inventory # 10081106
