From Lyndon Johnson s closest domestic adviser during the White House years comes a book in which Johnson leaps out of the pages in all his raw and earthy glory ("The New York Times Book Review") that s been called a joy to read (Stephen Ambrose, "The Washington Post Book World"). And now, a new introductory essay brings the reader up to date on Johnson s impact on America today. Califano takes us into the Oval Office as the decisions that irrevocably changed the United States were being crafted to create Johnson s ambitious Great Society. He shows us LBJ s commitment to economic and social revolution, and his willingness to do whatever it took to achieve his goals. Califano uncorks LBJ s legislative genius and reveals the political guile it took to pass the laws in civil rights, poverty, immigration reform, health, education, environmental protection, consumer protection, the arts, and communications. President Lyndon Johnson was bigger than life and no one who worked for him or was subjected to the Johnson treatment ever forgot it. As Johnson s Deputy President of Domestic Affairs ("The New York Times"), Joseph A. Califano s unique relationship with the president greatly enriches our understanding of our thirty-sixth president, whose historical significance continues to be felt throughout every corner of America to this day. A no-holds-barred account of Johnson s presidency, "The Triumph & Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson "is an intimate portrait of a President whose towering ambition for his country and himself reshaped America and ultimately led to his decision to withdraw from the political arena in which he fought so hard."
