Pivotal Presidents: Profiles in Leadership: Lyndon B. Johnson  (ISBN-10: 1680485156 | ISBN-13: 9781680485158)

Lyndon B. Johnson, thrust unexpectedly into the presidency after John F. Kennedy's assassination, ushered in a new wave of civil rights and launched a war against poverty. Though his experience as Senate majority leader helped ensure the passage of much of his domestic agenda, his administration was soon hampered by the ongoing war in Vietnam. By 1968, with the country embroiled in race riots as well as antiwar protests, Johnson declined to run for a second full term. This biography explores how a son of Texas pioneers became a bold champion of civil rights and embattled commander in chief.

Pivotal Presidents: Profiles in Leadership: Richard Nixon  (ISBN-10: 1680485164 | ISBN-13: 9781680485165)

During his presidency, Nixon arranged talks to end the Vietnam War, reestablished diplomatic relations with China, reformed welfare, and established the EPA. Despite his policy achievements, his presidency was undone by his role in covering up the Watergate scandal. In this book, readers will encounter a Richard Nixon of great complexity, a leader whose substantial political achievements were undone by deeply human weaknesses and failures of judgment.
