Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Dallek sums up his subject, the 36th U.S. president, in this generous and touching sentence: "If Lyndon Johnson demanded much and took much, he also gave much in return." In the initial book of this two-volume biography, Dallek ( Franklin D. Roosevelt and American Foreign Policy, 1932-1945 ) reconstructs Johnson's Texas childhood, his 1937 election to the House, his war experiences as a Navy officer, election to the Senate in '49, his years as "the greatest Senate majority leader in history," and finally his selection as John Kennedy's running mate in 1960. LBJ as wheeler-dealer is already a familiar figure, but Dallek, tracing the origin of the War on Poverty and the Great Society to Johnson's experiences and observations as a young man, reveals that much of the wheeling and dealing was an expression of Johnson's genuine interest in helping the disadvantaged. One of our least-admired presidents, Johnson (1908-1973) has been portrayed in recent years by Robert Caro and others as a monster of ambition, greed and cruelty. Dallek's LBJ is a somewhat more complicated, contradictory and sympathetic character, "struggling with inner demons that drove and tormented him." Photos. 50,000 first printing; $60,000 ad/promo.

From Library Journal

Dallek, a historian best known for his studies of American foreign policy, has taken on Robert Caro's formidable work ( The Years of Lyndon Johnson , Vol. 1: The Path to Power , LJ 12/15/82; Vol. 2: Means of Ascent , LJ 4/15/90) with this solid biography. Like Caro's, this is a work in progress--the first of two volumes. However, Dallek offers a more focused, balanced, and traditional view of Johnson, and his work may emerge as the standard LBJ biography after the controversy over Caro's approach has waned. Dallek acknowledges and documents Johnson's darker, "self-serving impulses" but also emphasizes his deep "concern for the national well-being." From this perspective, his view of LBJ is similar to that of Doris Kearns Goodwin's Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream ( LJ 6/1/76). Dallek, however, has had greater access to papers in the LBJ Library, supplemented by at least 100 other manuscript collections and oral histories. His work is the product of seven years of careful research, and the concluding volume will be eagerly awaited. Highly recommended for academic and most public libraries.
