About the book:

A powerful account of America at its best--Congress ratifying a national demand for civil rights for blacks. Robert Mann, a veteran Senate aid, recalls the political courage of Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas and Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota against the Senate. Despite criticism from liberals and conservatives, the two worked together to combat Richard B. Russell of Georgia, chairman of the Armed Services committee and leader of the Southern Democrats' effort to block civil rights measures. The tenacity and creativity of Johnson and Humphrey led to Russell's demise and the passing of John F. Kennedy's civil rights bill in 1965.
