Caro's third volume in his series on the life of Lyndon Johnson is as riveting as its predecessors; the series comprises the most admired and compelling political biography of our era. At the heart of the book is its unprecedented revelation of how legislative power works, how the U.S. Senate works, how Lyndon Johnson on his way to the presidency mastered both, and how he used his power to break Southern control of Capitol Hill and to pass the first civil rights legislation since Reconstruction. Interweaving his narrative with a brilliantly astute and concise history of the Senate, Caro shows how political initiatives triumph or fail, and how political genius functions.
