This is a brief yet comprehensive treatment of the major events of Lyndon Johnson's career with a central focus on his role as the emblematic figure in the rise and fall of postwar American liberalism. The volume also includes 15 documents - Johnson's own speeches and assessments of the president and his programmes by contemporaries and later scholars - that give students the opportunity to read about LBJ's career firsthand and to evaluate his impact.
