The Fierce Urgency of Now
Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Great Society
Paperback ISBN: 0143128019

Our practiced understanding is that this was an unprecedented liberal hour in America, a moment, after Kennedy's death, when the seas parted and Johnson could simply stroll through to victory. As Zelizer shows, this view is off-base: in many respects America was even more conservative than it seems now, and Johnson's legislative program faced bitter resistance" --Amazon.com.
