facinating thoroughly researched account

by ratdog on Aug 30, 2007

This book, the first of three written by Rbt. Caro about Lyndon Johnson, is a snapshot of American politics at a transformational juncture. It chronicles the rise of Johnson from humble east Texas beginnings to his first national office. At the center of the story is the first high intensity campaign in which electronic media played a major role. It pitted a tireless Johnson backed by limitless funding against a genuine Texas statesman. The process as well as the outcome produce a commentary on American politics which proves timely even today.
