Hubert Humphrey

By Carl Solberg
Norton, 1984
576 pp. $19.95

This fine biography is both a celebration of a politician driven toward high office by his commitment to liberal ideals and a tale of tragedy: Vice President Humphrey's brutally degrading treatment by President Johnson. The author believes Humphrey could have been elected in 1968 if he had detached himself sooner from Johnson's Vietnam War policies.
