About this title: "The Passage of Power" will focus on the years 1958-'64, from the time he began seeking the presidency, through his years as vice president under Kennedy, and to Johnson's becoming president after JFK's assassination. Caro said, "What do I want to show in this volume? I wanted to show how a master of politics can pick up the reins of power in a time of great crisis and what he can do with that power and the extraordinary results Lyndon Johnson did with it." This book may set in stone how people view Johnson's presidency.
