More About Master of the Senate by Robert A. Caro
 
 
 
Overview
Editor's Choice:

From preeminent biographer Robert Caro comes Master of the Senate, the third installment of the best-selling series on the life of Lyndon Johnson. This volume is as meticulously researched and highly readable as the first two. This is a wonderful book on one of the most fascinating political figures in history. If you enjoyed John Adams, or Theodore Rex, I highly recommend Master of the Senate.


At the heart of Master of the Senate 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 the 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 us how political initiatives triumph or fail and how political genius functions.

A magnificent work rich in the qualities that made the Washington Post say of Caro on Johnson: "At the summit of American historical writing . . . Proof that we live in a great age of biography."
