'Of all the books in the series, Bornet's volume is by far the longest and in the judgment of this reviewer is one of the best. ... This book provides two sensitive and well-researched chapters on Vietnam issues. ... an excellent chaptr on the president's relations with the media. ... a sympathetic but balanced appraisal... The book reflects a total mastery of an extraordinary variety and quatity of literature and many hours of patient archival research. It is a very good book. ... a generation of graduate students will be extremely grateful (for the bibliographical essay).'
