Flawed Giant: Lyndon Johnson and His Times 1961-1973

Robert Dallek
3.9/5 (432 ratings)
Flawed Giant--the monumental concluding volume to Robert Dallek's biography of Lyndon Baines Johnson--provides the most through, engrossing account ever published of Johnson's years in the national spotlight. Drawing on hours of newly released White House tapes and dozens of interviews with
people close to the President, Dallek reveals LBJ as a visionary leader who worked his will on Congress like no chief executive before or since, and also displays the depth of his private anguish as he became increasingly ensnared in Vietnam. Writing in a clear, thoughtful, and evenhanded style,
Dallek reveals both the greatness and the tangled complexities of one of the most extravagant characters ever to ascend to the White House.
