Description - Master of the Senate by Robert A. Caro

Quite breathtaking-one of the great political biographies.' Gordon Brown'For Caro, writing a biography is writing a thriller - in Johnson's case, a western. You can't stop turning the pages-I can't recommend this book highly enough.' Michael Howard'This book stands out because it brings that pace and drama to life- it makes it almost as exciting to read the book as it would have been to be there-a magnificent history of twentieth century America.' William Hague'Regarded by many as the greatest political biography of the modern era. Essential reading for those who want to comprehend power and politics. Compellingly readable-the breathtaking detail makes it impossible to put down.' The Times'Dazzling-awesome-Rarely will you come across a more compelling account of the nature of great power and its entanglement with massive personality. Rarely will you find another biography which is such a fascinating study of how a bad man became a power for the good.' Observer
