Lyndon B. JohnsonBook - 2003
Looking at some of America's most intriguing, beloved, and notorious presidents, Presidential Leaders explores both the professional and personal life of each president and the social issues of their times. Lyndon B. Johnson was a complicated man whose life was filled with both tremendous achievement and failure. His aggressive personality brought him his highest praise--and his harshest criticism--as a leader, and resulted in his success as a state representative, senator, and president. Although most often remembered for his controversial role in the Vietnam Conflict, it was his great contribution to the Civil Rights movement that remains his legacy.
