Abstract

Drawing on declassified documents and recent research on the Lyndon B. Johnson administration, this work provides a new general account of the president's handling of foreign relations, revisiting such major events as the Vietnam War, and crucial issues such as Anglo-American relations, US policy towards NATO, Latin America, and international economic affairs. Jonathan Colman contends that, although the Vietnam War could have been fought more effectively, Johnson had a capable strategy for handling the world beyond America's borders. Clearly and engagingly presented, this history is essential for readers seeking a fresh perspective on US foreign policy, the Cold War, and the modern presidency.
