Description

During the 1964 election campaign, Lyndon Johnson pledged to limit US involvement in the Vietnam War, and yet within a year America was fully committed to resisting the Vietcong. In this study of Johnson's volte face, Brian Van de Mark considers the pressures placed on the President to choose between his Great Society social proposals and the alienation of America's right wing, a conflict of interests that was enacted before his eyes during a dramatic weekend at Camp David in July 1965.
