An engrossing biography of President Lyndon Johnson from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Team of Rivals Hailed by the New York Times as the most penetrating, fascinating political biography I have ever read, Doris Kearns Goodwin's extraordinary and insightful book draws from... meticulous research in addition to the author's time spent working at the White House from 1967 to 1969. After Lyndon Johnson's term ended, Goodwin remained his confidante and assisted in the preparation of his memoir. In Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream, she traces the 36th president's life from childhood to his early days in politics, and from his leadership of the Senate to his presidency, analyzing his dramatic years in the White House, including both his historic domestic triumphs and his failures in Vietnam. Drawn from personal anecdotes and candid conversation with Johnson, Goodwin paints a rich and complicated portrait of one of our nation's most compelling politicians.
