The best account of LBJ
on 19 May 2009
LBJ's presidency should be remembered for the Civil Rights act and various other reforming pieces of legislation - sadly, its mostly remembered for "Hey LBJ, how many kids did you kill today" due to the Vietnam War. Dallek presents the man as he was, of great aspirational attributes and terrible character flaws. Excellent.
