At the start of the book we see LBJ coming back from his naval service in the Pacific and returning to his Congressional duties in Washington. After his unsuccessful run for a . Senate seat in 1941 we see Johnson returning to his congressional duties where quite frankly he was unhappy as he did not have the seniority to chair any consequential committees.
Robert Caro took seven years to write The Path to Power. His effort must be commended. For example, Robert Caro spends the first 5 or so chapters of the book going through the Johnson family history and the history of the Hill Country, which gives the reader a more complete picture of Johnson growing up. He will stray from the story of Johnson and have chapters devoted to influential people in his like Sam Rayburn or George and Herman Brown of Brown and Root, a major political donor and source of his early power in congress. All of this provides such a deeper understanding of the life of Lyndon Johnson.

Johnson in this first volume of his definitive biography, Robert Caro profiles the very land on which the future president would be born and raised. Caro describes the verdant grass and gently rolling hills that lured 19th century settlers into the isolated territory only to discover the land’s fertility was a deception, that the soil was rich but shallow, sitting atop a bedrock of limestone. On several occasions the character of Lyndon Johnson will slip away as vivid portraits are painted of historical figures both major and minor.

Well Caro leaves us no doubt. I think the most dramatic parts of Caro's books are his description of civil rights in the United States. Although I tired of the author's repeated descriptions of how LBF invaded what is called personal space: his ham hands on people shoulders, his iron grip through lapel holes--I probably would have slugged him--,had little use for the detail descriptions of the Senate chamber and would have had liked more on the political context. of the third volume--what was going on after the mid fifties besides civil rights--, Caro's work is indeed monumental. I get it that the Senate stood in the way of reform in the years after reconstruction.
The Path to Power book. The Path to Power, Book One, reveals in extraordinary The Years of Lyndon Johnson is the political biography of our time. No president-no era of American politics-has been so intensively and sharply examined at a time when so many prime witnesses to hitherto untold or misinterpreted facets of a life, a career, and a period of history could still be persuaded to speak.
