American political scholarship has so focused on Vietnam that little attention has been paid to Johnson's foreign policy in other regions of the world. Recently some scholars have moved beyond Vietnam to examine other aspects of American dealings with the world during the Johnson years. In this volume, H. W. Brands has gathered the work of some of the most important of these scholars, not only addressing regions other than Vietnam but also asking important analytic questions about Johnson's foreign policies.

- Robert Dallek, a Johnson biographer, evaluates the president as a world leader.

- Thomas A. Schwartz reexamines Johnson's policies toward Europe, concluding that those policies were "among the most important achievements of his presidency."

- John Prados argues that Johnson deserves more credit for the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) than he has previously been given.

- William O. Walker, III, analyzes the relationship between the United States and Cuba during Johnson's presidency.

- Peter Felten explains the complicated tangle of U.S.-Dominican relations and Johnson's role in establishing the parameters of U.S. policy.

- In "Nasser Delenda Est," Douglas Little examines the principal Middle Eastern crisis of the Johnson years, the Six Day War.

- Robert J. McMahon investigates American relations with three Asian allies: Pakistan, Thailand, and the Philippines.

In Beyond Vietnam: The Foreign Policies of Lyndon Johnson, Brands offers scholars of the presidency and American foreign policy a compelling new look at the foreign policies of the Johnson presidency.
