Summary
Traces Johnson's life as one of our most controversial leaders. Surveys the influence of LBJ's southern background on his political climb, his work with the New Deal, the Great Society legislation, and his tenure in the White House. He is depicted as a paternalistic wheeler-dealer politician and ingenious strategist who had a driving need to gain approval and popularity
