Item description

THE TRAGEDY OF LYNDON JOHNSON by Eric F. Goldman, copyright 1968, 1969. Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1969. Hard cover, with dust jacket. Stated Published February 10, 1969 / First and Second Printings Before Publication. 6 oe" x 9 oe" tall, 531 pages plus Index. Book is in very good condition â“ does have a personal library plate inside front cover. Unclipped dust jacket’s gloss has dulled somewhat â“ otherwise only minor chipping and rubbing along edges. From the jacket: It is the special quality of Eric Goldman’s book that it is the work of a historian who was a participant in the making of history. The Tragedy of Lyndon Johnsonis a book that today’s Americans will turn to for insights into our present condition, and that future Americans will count essential to their understanding of the American policy was shaped in the 1960’s. The resulting volume represents his account, his analysis, and his reflections. It is a book of fascination and importance â“ rich with fresh personal and political detail â“ written with the immediacy of the memoirist and the scholar’s appreciation of long-range trends of American life. It examines with independence and objectivity the trimumphs and failures of the Johnson Administration and reveals the great strengths â“ and tragic flaws â“ of the almost larger-than-life figure of Lyndon Johnson. The Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson is a distinguished study of a profoundly complex man and his relationship to our profoundly complex times. And, from the jacket’s back: "Lyndon Johnson could win votes, enact laws, maneuver mountains. He could not acquire that something beyond, which cannot be won, enacted or maneuvered but must be freely given . . . that respect, affection and rapport which alone permit an American President genuinely to lead. In his periods of triumph and of downsweep, in peace as in war, he stood the tragic figure of an extraordinarily gifted President who was the wrong man from the wrong place at the wrong time under the wrong circumstances."
