From Kennedy to Johnson

(p.50) 2 A New Deal for the New Frontier

Thomas Tunstall Allcock

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter studies the tumultuous period 1960–1964, focusing largely on developments in Washington, and incorporating analysis of Kennedy’s management of the Alliance and Lyndon Johnson’s tragic elevation to the presidency. In studying Johnson’s and Mann’s difficult relationships with Kennedy’s key Latin American aides, deep divisions within the administration are revealed that would have damaging consequences in the coming years. Long-simmering tensions would boil over following Mann’s appointment as head of Latin American policy, culminating in the creation of the “Mann Doctrine,” which critics of the administration claimed signaled the death of the Alliance. The clashes between New Frontier advocates of social-scientific theories of modernization and the New Deal liberalism of Johnson and Mann shed important new light on the planning and implementation of America’s “development decade.”
