The story of Mike Mansfield's influential fifteen-year reign as
Senate Majority Leader is colored with some of the most important
events of this century: the election of John F. Kennedy, the
Kennedy and King assassinations, student and political unrest of
the late Sixties, Vietnam, Watergate, the Nixon resignation, and
numerous important pieces of legislation from the era, among them
the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Valeo, Secretary of the Senate under
Mansfield, writes about the Senate and Mansfield's role in national
affairs from 1961-76. He argues that Mansfield was instrumental in
shaping a more egalitarian kind of Senate than that of the 1950s,
when Lyndon B. Johnson was Majority Leader.
