Holt, Rinehart & Winston, 1971. FIRST EDITION stated, first printing. Excellent condition, red cloth with title boxes, original dust jacket not clipped, peeling glossy coating spined edge chips and tears. Numerous photographs throughout. This is the Presidential memoir of Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th president of the United States. A moderate Democrat and vigorous U.S. Senate leader from Texas, Johnson was elected vice president in 1960 and acceded to the presidency upon the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His administration produced significant social welfare and civil rights legislation, but his escalation of the Vietnam War seriously divided the American people, leading Johnson to announce that he would neither seek nor accept his party's re-nomination. 636 pages.
