Full Description

Drawing on an extensive trove of written and oral sources, Longley explores how President Lyndon Baines Johnson perceived the most significant events of 1968 and how he responded. He highlights many of the challenges faced by the president during this year, which LBJ characterized as a 'year of a continuous nightmare'.
