About the Authors
  • J. William Fulbright was the longest serving and most powerful chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Both an intellectual and an internationalist, he had great influence over the course of American foreign relations in the 1960s and 1970s. Fulbright was also the most prominent, and the most effective, of the first American critics of the Vietnam War. His criticism was particularly galling and damning to Lyndon Johnson because Fulbright was a principled internationalist who could not be dismissed as an ideologue. Fulbright used hearings by the Foreign Relations Committee as a forum in which to advance his powerful critique of the war, and his writings constitute an ongoing, comprehensive critique of American foreign policy. This abridgement of Woods' prize-winning biography of J. William Fulbright presents the full story of Fulbright's role as one of the leading congressional opponents of the Vietnam War.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Chapter after chapter, I found myself wishing that Fulbright had been listened to, that his voice had carried farther. What a different history - certainly less destructive and more progressive from that contained in this fair-minded book - we would have had if the advice of the outspoken senator from Arkansas had been heeded.' Thomas G. Paterson

    'The book is as readable as it and its subject are important.' Walter LaFeber, Cornell University

    'In this compelling biography, Randall Woods has vividly captured the contradictions of a complex man and the political drama of his three tumultuous decades in the US Senate.' Ronald Steel, University of Southern California and author of Walter Lippman and the American Century
