And with your courage and with your compassion and your desire, we will build a Great Society. It is a society where no child will go unfed, and no youngster will go unschooled. Newly elected President Lyndon B. Johnson was on the verge of formalizing The Great Society when he said these words. It was a set of domestic programs with the main goal of the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. Some Great Society proposals were stalled initiatives from John F. Kennedy's New Frontier. Readers will be intrigued by the history of this bold plan.
