Summary note
"In the 1960's, Americans embraced the liberal promises and programs of two presidents: John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson. Kennedy, the East Coast blue blood, and Johnson, the rough and tumble Texan, could not have been more different. Yet each embracedthe legacy of Franklin Roosevelt and sought to reshape his 'New Deal' into their own world vision. For Kennedy it was the 'New Fontier.' For Johnson, the 'Great Society.' Each had its triumphs and failures, but together they redefined the role of the federal government in American life and culture."--- Original container.
