A pivotal period in the life of the nation
Book four of Robert A. Caro’s ;e Years
of Lyndon Johnson takes readers from1958

he inherited a sta; ;ercely loyal to his slain
predecessor. Caro shows how the political
genius with which Johnson ruled the Senate
then enabled him to make the presidency
his own—his ;nest hour before he was
ensnared in the trap of Vietnam.
