Product description

This fresh, general account of President Johnson's handling of US foreign relations is essential reading for students of US foreign policy, the modern presidency and the Cold War. Drawing on recently declassified documents and the latest published research, it provides a sympathetic account of Johnson's foreign policy and challenges the traditional image of him as clumsy and inept in diplomatic matters. The author contends that although the war in Vietnam could have been prosecuted more effectively, overall Johnson handled foreign policy very capably.
