Doris Kearns Goodwin's classic life of Lyndon Johnson, who presided over the Great Society, the Vietnam War, and other defining moments the tumultuous 1960s, is a monument in political biography. From the moment the author, then a young woman from Harvard, first encountered President Johnson at a White House dance in the spring of 1967, she became fascinated by the man--his character, his enormous energy and drive, and his manner of wielding these gifts in an endless pursuit of power. As a member of his White House staff, she soon became his personal confidante, and in the years before his death he revealed himself to her as he did to no other. Widely praised and enormously popular, Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream is a work of biography like few others. With uncanny insight and a richly engrossing style, the author renders LBJ in all his vibrant, conflicted humanity.

A series of bloody engagements known as "the border battles" followed, with the principle action taking place at Dak To. Drawing on the writings of key figures, veterans' memoirs and the author's records from two tours in Vietnam, this book merges official history with the recollections of those who were there, revealing previously unpublished details of these decisive battles.

Martin Luther King, Jr. neemt vandaag een voorname plaats in binnen de Amerikaanse historiografie. Zijn Nobelprijs voor de Vrede, tweehonderd eredoctoraten en de oprichting van het King Memorial bevestigen die positie. In 1964 en 1965 bezocht hij Nederland en ontving een ereprijs uit de handen van koningin Juliana. Toch kwam King vroegtijdig aan zijn einde. Op 4 april 1968 werd hij vermoord door een rabiaat racist. De wereld stond even stil. Aan dit boek werkte Europees Kingdeskundige Willy Schaeken ruim twaalf jaar. Na grondige analyse verbindt hij de moordaanslag met het historische moordklimaat en de moordomstandigheden. De rol van John Edgar Hoover, de Ku Klux Klan, rechtse groeperingen, de oorlog in Vietnam, het Amerikaanse racisme gaat hij niet uit de weg. Uiteindelijk verbindt de auteur Kings laatste levensjaren met zijn personalistische visie en biedt hij een antwoord op de vraag naar Kings levenselixir. “Historian Willy Schaeken has added to his stature as a leading King expert with this insightful account of the civil rights leader’s assassination. By placing King’s tragic death in the context of twentieth-century American racial relations, he helps readers understand why it happened.” Prof. dr. Clayborne Carson Centennial Professor of History, R. L. Founding Director The Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute (Stanford University), bekroond auteur in US en Europa “Although a lone gunman - and no one else - murdered Martin Luther King, Jr., Willy Schaeken shows how J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI created a ‘climate of murder’ by demonizing King. Schaeken offers a fresh and interesting perspective on King’s strength, leadership and influence.” Prof. dr. Adaim Fairclough Raymond and Beverly Sackler Professor of American History and Culture (Universiteit Leiden), bekroond auteur in US en Europa “Willy Schaeken has produced a fascinating study of the final years of Martin Luther King’s life and the circumstances surrounding his assassination. Schaeken’s book should be read by anyone who wishes to know the truth about how a lowly second rate criminal fooled the American public into accepting outrageous and false conspiracy theories.” Mel Ayton Historicus (Durham University, UK) en auteur van ‘A Racial Crime. James Earl Ray and the Murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’ en talrijke historische boeken
