The triumph & tragedy of Lyndon Johnson: the White House years
In this classic portrait of LBJ, Joseph A. Califano reveals the giant at close hand. Califano captures his mentor's lively, irascible spirit as he puts us in the White House alongside LBJ during the trauma of the Vietnam War and the creation of the Great Society. A new afterword draws on the insights offered by tapes released by the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library after the book's original publication to provide further perspective for the complex picture Califano has drawn.
