Abstract

This study provides a detailed analysis of Lyndon Johnson’s management style and the events that challenged the American vision of Atlantic affairs during the Cold War. While in office, Johnson faced Charles de Gaulle’s antagonistic policies, increasingly complex monetary problems, and a fundamental shift in the conception of nuclear defense structures. His skill in managing these situations left the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the Atlantic Alliance, and East-West relations in better shape, and paved the way for a more realistic and fruitful Cold War detente in the future.
