Remarkably rich analysis...an especially important and insightful contribution to the literature on the Vietnam War. -- Gary R. Hess * American Historical Review * Striking material...this subject has been written about often, but never with keener understanding. -- Ronald Steel, author of <I>Pax Americana</I>, <I>The End of Alliance: America and the Future of Europe</I>, <i>Walter Lippmann and the American Century</i>, and other works on American foreign policy The best in print...an impressive range of sources to craft a work that not only delineates LBJ's dilemmas but penetrates his motives. -- John Prados, author of Presidents' Secret Wars An unusually lucid and even gripping work of scholarship. -- Jeff Stein * The Washington Post * An absolutely terrific book...Pay Any Price is simply the best book on the period anyone has written. -- Marilyn B.
