Theodore H. White’s landmark Making of the President series revolutionized American political journalism, investing his subject with both epic scope and a fresh frankness about backroom political strategy that was unlike anything that had come before. In this secondvolume of his groundbreaking series, White offers an intimate chronicleof the 1964 campaign for the White House, from the earthshaking tragedy of President Kennedy’s assassination through the battle for power between Lyndon B. Johnson and Barry Goldwater, whose candidacy paved the way for the modern conservative movement. White reports from within both campaigns, bringing to life a turbulent year in America’s history and a furious contest between two tough and seasoned political pros.

The Making of the President 1964
Average rating
5 / 5
A classic
October 27th, 2014
This is an excellent book on the 1964 Presidential election, surprisingly balanced given the author's obvious (and correct) belief that LBJ was the better candidate. My only complaint is the LBJ barely shows up for the first half of the book, which is all Goldwater and Rockefeller. Still, and excellent, informative and prescient read.
