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 battle, and different defining moments the tumultuous Sixties, is a monument in political biography. From the instant the writer, then a tender lady from Harvard, first encountered President Johnson at a White condominium dance within the spring of 1967, she grew to become excited about the man--his personality, his huge, immense power 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 turned his own confidante, and within the years earlier than his demise he published himself to her as he did to no other.

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