Some brief overview of this book

Mutual Contempt is at once a fascinating study in character and an illuminating meditation on the role character can play in shaping history.—Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

Lyndon Johnson and Robert Kennedy loathed each other. Their antagonism, propelled by clashing personalities, contrasting views, and a deep, abiding animosity, would drive them to a bitterness so deep that even civil conversation was often impossible. Played out against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s, theirs was a monumental political battle that would shape federal policy, fracture the Democratic party, and have a lasting effect on the politics of our times. Drawing on previously unexamined recordings and documents, as well as memoirs, biographies, and scores of personal interviews, Jeff Shesol weaves the threads of this epic story into a compelling narrative that reflects the impact of LBJ and RFKs tumultuous relationship on politics, civil rights, the war on poverty, and the war in Vietnam. As Publishers Weekly noted, This is indispensable reading for both experts on the period and newcomers to the history of that decade. An exhaustive and fascinating history. . . . Shesols grasp of the eras history is sure, his tale often entertaining, and his research awesome.—Russell Baker, New York Review of Books Thorough, provocative. . . . The story assumes the dimensions of a great drama played out on a stage too vast to comprehend.—Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post (1997 Critics Choice) This is the most gripping political book of recent years.—Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. A New York Times Notable Book of the Year
