President Lyndon B. Johnson – a profile
Professor Philip Bobbitt and American playwright Bonnie Greer profile former US President Lyndon B. Johnson, giving their opinions on his personality, politics and the events that shaped his presidency. They describe the ways Johnson's 'Great Society' oversaw major legislation for progressive reforms in society including civil rights, education, voting rights and anti-poverty. Despite this, they believe that his legacy is ultimately clouded by escalating America's involvement in the Vietnam War.
