Actually, the edition of this book that I read was published in 1972 but it would be too much trouble to add it. McPherson was an LBJ aide during his days as a Senate. Although it has nothing particularly profound to say about politics, it provides and interesting portrait of the "Whales and Minnows" in the U.S. Senate, especially in the 1950's.
