Tragically, something went wrong. Instead of finding itsUtopia, America became a country struggling desperately to escape its Armageddon.President Kennedy's New Frontier fell far short of its promise in tangible domesticlegislation and his foreign policy decisions pushed the world to the brink of anuclear holocaust, while President Johnson's dream of a Great Society foundered inthe quicksand of the Vietnam war. This revealing history of the Kennedy-Johnsonyears begins with the presidential primaries of 1960 and concludes with Johnson'sfinal weeks as a lame duck President. An expert and objective history of an excitingperiod -- its social, cultural, and economic facets as well as its politicaldevelopments.
