Beschreibung

`Monumental...sets a standard by which future political biographies will be judged' Daily Telegraph In this second volume of The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Robert Caro enters into the central narrative of his magisterial biography - one of the richest, most intensive and revealing examinations ever undertaken of an American President.

Portrait

Robert A. Caro graduated from Princeton University, later became a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, and was for six years an investigative reporter for Newsday. His first book, The Power Broker, won the Pulitzer Prize in biography and the Frances Parkman Prize of the Society of American Historians. Both The Path to Power and Means of Ascent won the National Book Critics Circle Award as the Best Nonfiction Book of the Year; Master of the Senate is the critically-acclaimed third volume of the biography. Caro has also won the H. L. Mencken Award, the Carr P. Collins Award from the Texas Institute of Letters, and an Award in Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Caro, who lives in New York City with his wife, has served as President of the Author's Guild of Americans and as Vice President of PEN.

Pressestimmen

"Like its predecessor this is a wonderfully detailed, magnificently readable study that gives us not only Johnson's character but also a vivid picture of America in the 1940's" Literary Review "Readers of Robert Caro's Means of Ascent are in for a white-knuckle hair-raising tale...riveting and explosive" Time "Uputdownable...as a compulsive as any Hollywood thriller" Evening Standard "His depiction of Texas is as brilliant as his account of Lydnon Johnson's driven soul...This is a richly rewarding book" New Statesman & Society
