Lyndon Johnson and the American DreamBook - 1991
Takes us through the vast landscape of Johnson's political and personal life: from his childhood, dominated by an indulgent mother and a hell-raising politico father, through his early political victories and the ideals that inspired them; from the Washington system that trained him, through his election as Vice President and the transitional year, 1964, when JFK's assassination brought him to the highest office in the land; from the remarkable talents that brought him triumph, to the inner demons that tormented him and the flaws that engendered his ultimate tragedy.
