Judgment Days: Lyndon Baines Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the laws that changed America
by Nick Kotz
Opposite in almost every way, mortally suspicious of each other at first, Lyndon Baines Johnson and Martin Luther King, Jr. were thrust together in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Both men sensed an historic opportunity and moved ... the entire nation toward the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 ... [This book] offers needed perspective on a presidency too often linked solely to the tragedy of Vietnam.
