The Years of Lyndon Johnson: Means of Ascent
Robert A. Caro
ISBN: 0394528352
Hardcover, 506 pages
Alfred A. Knopf, 1990
Very Good/Very Good BCE

The second installment in a projected four-volume biography of LBJ that opened with The Path to Power, Means of Ascent shines a harsh light on the early political years of one of America's most paradoxical presidents. The man who would later ram civil rights legislation through a reluctant Congress, and then be brought down by Vietnam, came out of a political swamp--Caro gives a graphic picture of the Texas democratic political machine at its most corrupt. The climax of the book is LBJ's election to the Senate in 1948, an election he won by 87 dubious votes out of almost a million. That vote arguably changed history. This book won the 1990 National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography.

This is a nice Book Club Edition copy. Both book and dustjacket are without writing, marks or tears, very little cover wear, no remainder marks, jacket not clipped (no price listing), no remainder marks, and not ex-library.
