Summary
The "deadly bet" that Lyndon Johnson made and lost was that he could engage in a protracted overseas war and still accomplish his domestic agenda. In this analysis of the fallout of that bet, LaFeber (history, Cornell U.) examines the politics of the 1968 presidential election by discussing the activities of nine important historical actors: President Johnson, General William Westmoreland, Senator Eugene McCarthy, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Hubert Humphrey, George Wallace, and Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu.
