"A well-conceived and executed work. Freyer has provided both students of recent American history and legal historians with a collection of Johnson's most important essays—each of which contains an editorial précis that summarizes the most salient points. Moreover, in his introduction, Freyer has given historical context to help the reader better understand Johnson's motivations and the significance of his actions."
This collection assembles some of Johnson's most thought-provoking and insightful essays, many of which explain and defend a number of his decisions. Also included in this volume is the first published transcript of a 1980 public television interview with Bill Moyers. Meticulously detailed and documented, yet accessible to a wide range of readers, this book explores the constitutional ideals that Johnson forged and defended as he persistently overcame public officials' resistance to constitutional rights and social change.
