In His Steps
[Lyndon Johnson and the Kennedy Mystique]

Paul R.Henggeler
1991

In the White House, Lyndon Johnson was haunted by the myth of Camelot. In this intimate personal and political history based on exhaustive new research, Paul Henggeler chronicles Johnson's frustrating struggle with John and Robert Kennedy.
LBJ saw in them both opportunities and threats. Towards John he felt affection and respect, and he often drew upon the "Kennedy legacy" in his conduct of the presidency, recognizing its immense political value. But Johnson feared Robert Kennedy as the living embodiment of that legacy and as a man who was determined to dethrone him.
Drawing upon thousands of fresh documents as well as published sources, Paul Henggeler has constructed a fascinating and revealing account of personalities and politics which crippled the Johnson presidency and produced dramatic upheaval at the highest level of government.

This book, finished right before Connally's death, is the story of his life in politics, a life of almost Shakespearean range, marked by great triumphs as well as personal tragedy and heartbreak.
