Lyndon B. Johnson

Lyndon B. Johnson

Lyndon B. Johnson was a complicated man whose life was filled with both tremendous achievement and failure.  His aggressive personality as a leader brought him his highest praise—and his harshest criticism—and resulted in his success as a state representative, senator, and president.  Although most often remembered for his controversial role in the Vietnam War, it was his great contribution to the civil rights movement that remains his legacy.

“Levy affirms LBJ’s legacy as the strongest civil-rights advocate who ever occupied the White House but balances it with his entanglement in the Vietnam quagmire and his ultimate rejection by the American people.”
