Born in central Texas, Lyndon B. Johnson served as John F. Kennedy’s vice president and was sworn in as president after the assassination. Throughout his term, he urged the nation "to build a great society, a place where the meaning of man's life matches the marvels of man's labor." Turning down the opportunity to run for reelection in 1968 after 37 years in Washington, Johnson retired to his ranch in Texas.

The Johnson Years offers a complete look at the major people, events, and policies of Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidency. This comprehensive reference contains more than 350 biographical entries of key figures in this administration, as well as numerous appendixes featuring primary source documents such as presidential speeches and executive decisions.
