Years of Lyndon Johnson Volume 1: The Path to Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol. 1 by Robert A Caro
Years of Lyndon Johnson Volume 1: The Path to Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol. 1

Kathryn Rohde, January 1, 2013

This series is the best and most readable story of a puzzling figure and American Government and history. What I particularly enjoyed, is the wide view this and the subsequent books offer. In this book, we get a political and environmental view of the area in which the story is set. We get a view of how LBJ's character was formed and the paradox of the man who was among the most influential American's of the 20th century. The leader who brought a new era in Civil Rights, Medicare, and anti-poverty programs also initiated the most divisive war in history. He passed the most liberal legislation of the century while ending up reviled and forced from office for his illiberal foreign policy. Caron's writing is fine and his research is amazing. I have never read a biography of this depth.
