A manificent book, truly remarkable,
This review is from: Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson III (Paperback)
This is an imposing book. Huge, and at first sight dull. Caro starts off with a history of the Senate. But he does so brilliantly, gradually developing a layered and richly drawn portrait of the context of his subject. By looking at his time as a Senator and the way he uses the institution to get what he wants this book presents a fascinating picture of LBJ and his times. A quite brilliant book.
