From the dust jacket-"The Years of Lyndon Johnson is the political biography of our time. Here is the perfect joining of subject and writer: Johnson, the man of awesome complexity, energy, ambition, and power-obsessed with secrecy, obscuring (often 'rewriting') the facts of his personal and political life; Caro, his biographer, awarded both the Pulitzer and Parkman Prizes for his life of Robert Moses, The Power Broker-and everywhere acclaimed for the brilliance, tenacity, and integrity of his research, for his grasp of character and of the workings of power."
