Exploring the influence of personality upon politics, Mr. Wicker explains why John F. Kennedy, the popular president, failed to push his legislative program through Congress, and why Lyndon Johnson, the consummate domestic politician, squandered his great consensus in an unpopular war in Vietnam. "Steadily persuasive...wonderfully astute and incomparably lucid."-Newsweek.
