“The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson” is very well written and a pleasure to read. Robert A. Caro is the author of this book. This book provides the whole story, including the actions behind the scenes, of the historic events. The Passage of Power” provides a great perspective on the 1960 Presidential Campaign, Johnson’s painful years as Vice President, the Kennedy assassination and then Johnson’s masterful assumption of the Presidency. Along the way, the reader also gets a great look at the Kennedys particularly John and Bobby. The disdain that the “Camelot Crowd” had for Johnson is well described.
The absolute and mutual hatred between Bobby and Lyndon was truly amazing and Caro covers it all in detail. At times Caro’s narrative is a bit repetitive, but this is probably necessary both to drive home key points and to remind readers of things Caro discussed years ago in previous volumes. Although the Austin TV station is mentioned to some degree, the mechanics of how Johnson became wealthy are not covered very well. Finally, with the exception of the Bobby Kennedy discussion near the end, Caro pretty much dismisses assassination conspiracy theories on a “trust me on this one” basis without serious discussion. Overall, this is a great series and a great book.
The “Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson” provides a depth of context that brings LBJ into great relief. Robert A. Caro is the author of this book. It will be hard to equal this amazing book. It reads like a Trollope novel, but not even Trollope explored the ambitions and the gullibility’s of men as deliciously as Robert Caro does. Robert Caro provides a depth of context that brings LBJ into great relief.
The first three chapters on the history of the US Senate and how it functions (and dysfunctions) alone are worth the price of the book. Caro includes facts you will find nowhere else because he did the original research with hundreds of interviews and long, tedious days in the dusty corridors of the Johnson Library and the back roads of the Texas Hill Country. It’s well written, engaging, and illuminating. Caro is a gifted and passionate writer, and his all-encompassing approach to understanding LBJ provides readers with a panoramic history of twentieth-century American politics as well as a compelling discourse on the nature and uses of political power and one of the best analyses of the legislative process ever written.
“The Path to Power (The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Volume 1)” is a wealth of well-documented and well-presented information that leaves the reader feeling that he/she has seen into the soul of the book’s subject. Robert A. Caro is the author of this book. Robert Caro’s biographical works are voluminous, but he is a spellbinding storyteller and consummate historian all of which leaves the reader wanting more. The excitement and wonder of his personal journey of discovery are evident to the reader. His thorough and meticulous research (with his bride Ina’s able assistance) enables him to weave apparently isolated insignificance into a cohesive study of his subject’s psychological formation and its effect upon the subject’s gaining and wielding of power.
That is not to say readers won’t differ in their ethical interpretations of its use, because you can tell by other reviews that they do. This book about the first years of LBJ’s political life is nothing if not thorough. A lot of pages and a lot of interesting information about a man who while certainly flawed in many ways ended up doing a lot of good as President. Caro’s research is exhaustive. Caro shows a truly fantastic story containing two primaries where LBJ had worked the corrupt Texas political system to save his political life. It did not end until the last primary had gone to court. In this depiction of LBJ, we see a highly energetic man that will do anything to win, and in doing so we see a man who is doing so sharpened his backroom political skills which would be seen later when he led the Senate to some of the greatest left wing legislation ever seen.
