Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream: The Most Revealing Portrait of a President and Presidential Power Ever Written

Doris Kearns Goodwin


Doris Kearns Goodwin's vintage lifetime of Lyndon Johnson, who presided over the nice Society, the Vietnam struggle, and different defining moments the tumultuous Nineteen Sixties, is a monument in political biography. From the instant the writer, then a tender girl from Harvard, first encountered President Johnson at a White condo dance within the spring of 1967, she turned excited about the man--his personality, his huge, immense strength and force, and his demeanour of wielding those presents in an never-ending pursuit of energy. As a member of his White condo employees, she quickly grew to become his own confidante, and within the years sooner than his dying he published himself to her as he did to no other.

Widely praised and tremendously well known, Lyndon Johnson and the yank Dream is a piece of biography like few others. With uncanny perception and a richly engrossing kind, the writer renders LBJ in all his shiny, conflicted humanity.
