Riassunto: Presidential Profiles is a new series that highlights the administrations of the most recent U.S. Presidents. Organized in an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format, each volume focuses on a particular administration, including an introduction, a section of biographical entries, a chronology that spans the history of the administration, and much more. Extensive appendixes contain important documents such as inaugural addresses, important presidential speeches, tables listing the members of the White House staff, cabinet members, and members of Congress and the Senate. These timely, fact-filled compendiums are written for high school and college students and serve as wonderful resources for anyone interested in American government or these select presidents.
From Booklist: Thirty years after the first publication of The Johnson Years, a volume in the PresidentialProfiles reference series, a revised edition is now available. There are 404 individuals profiled in this newest volume as compared to 568 in the 1976 publication.
Each of the biographical sketches is of politically significant individuals from the Johnson presidency, 1963-1969. Included are people who worked in the Johnson administration, prominent congressional representatives and senators, Supreme Court justices, and state and local officials who were influential on a national level. As these were the civil rights years and the height of the Vietnam War, this volume includes anti-Vietnam War activists, civil rights leaders, and social and cultural critics. An introductory essay gives a good overview of the Johnson presidency, discussing his aspirations for the Great Society, his social-reform plan to end poverty and extend equal rights to all Americans.
Each entry lists birth and death (if applicable) years, the individual's title, and a discussion of the person's career, particularly the years 1963-1969. Major accomplishments and sphere of influence are discussed for each individual. Substantial revisions have been made in many of the biographies as new information has come to light in the release of public documents and personal papers. The length of the entries varies according to the importance of the individual during the Johnson presidency. Names in small caps within a biography indicate a separate entry on that individual. The appendixes include a chronology, lists of principal U.S. government officials of the Johnson years, selected primary documents, and a selected bibliography.
The 1976 volume contained additional references at the end of each biography and an extensive bibliography arranged by subject areas, which this newer volume does not offer. However, this volume is well written and is an excellent purchase for college and university and public libraries. kaye talley
