The Wages of Globalism: Lyndon Johnson and the Limits of American Power / Edition 1by H. W. Brands
Pub. Date: 04/28/1997
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
For a quarter-century, the shadow of Vietnam has so darkened Lyndon Johnson's reputation in foreign affairs that it has been difficult for historians to appreciate what he did right. Now H. W. Brands offers a fresh look at Johnson's handling of international relations, putting Vietnam in the context of the many crises he confronted and the outdated policies of global containment he inherited. The result is a fascinating portrait of a master politician at work, maneuvering through a series of successes that, ironically, help explain his great failure in Vietnam.
