Reprint. Originally published: 1998.

The final volume of Robert Dallek's biography of Lyndon B.

Johnson. It takes the reader through Johnson's tumultuous years in the White House, his unprecedented accomplishments there, and the tragic war that would be his downfall.

Johnson emerges as a man riddled with contradictions, a man of towering intensity and anguished insecurity, of grandiose ambition and grave self-doubt, a man who was brilliant, crude, intimidating, compassionate, overbearing, driven: "A tornado in pants."Drawing on hundreds of newly released tapes and extensive interviews with those closest to Johnson - including insights from Ladybird and his press secretary Bill Moyers - Dallek takes the reader behind the scenes to provide an intimate portrait of Johnson.
