read & download Mutual Contempt Lyndon Johnson Robert Kennedy and the Feud That Defined a Decade Jeff Shesol ☆ 0 read Mutual Contempt Lyndon Johnson Robert Kennedy and the Feud That Defined a Decade review à 100 Lyndon Johnson and Robert Kennedy loathed each other Their antagonism propelled by clashing personalities contrasting views and a deep abiding animosity would drive them to a bitterness so deep that even civil conversation was often impossible Played out against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s theirs was a monumental political battle that would shape federal policy fracture the Democratic party and have a lasting effect on the politics of our times Drawi. Having read all of the Caro books on LBJ I was not sure this book would add much of interest It certainly did giving a detailed view of the men in the context of their long rivalry and uite frankly their hated for each other I think the author did a fair job of trying to be balanced with an honest assessment of where some of the fault lines existed in this relationship LBJ could win over politicians that were his eual or even his superiors see Richard Russell and Sam Rayburn but he just could not crack the personality of Bobby Kennedy It is clear that Kennedy did not wish to be persuaded on the relative merits of LBJ and that animus led him to make bad judgements His attempt to move LBJ off the ticket in 1960 was finessed away by JFK but if Bobby had his way it is very likely that JFK would not have prevailed in that election LBJ having felt the RFK whip remained paranoid and bitter over him right to the end Having ascended to the presidency the way he did fueled that paranoia and had LBJ looking over his shoulder constantly The LBJ RFK rivalry is one of the most intriguing political relationships in American history and for those interested this book is an excellent examination of the men and the relationship between two strong willed titans of the Democratic Party

I have read many accounts of this time period I have read biographies about both Robert Kennedy and LBJ I have read work by Arthur Schlesinger and Clark Clifford Several works about Nixon go into his perception of this rivalry A good analogy was drawn in the book It relayed a political cartoon involving a representation of a LBJ as a stout book propped up between two bookends one labeled JFK the other RFK Lyndon B Johnson accomplished an awful lot in his presidency but will probably always be overshadowed by the Kennedy myth and legend This book is a little slanted toward RFK but in general is very well written well researched and informative Not beach reading mind you but worth it if you are interested in politics
