The Triumph and Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson: The White House Years

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Joseph A. Califano Jr.

Narrated By: Norman Dietz

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: February 2015

Duration: 17 hours 26 minutes

Summary:

President Lyndon Johnson was bigger than life-and no one who worked for him or was subjected to the 'Johnson treatment' ever forgot it. As Johnson's 'Deputy President of Domestic Affairs,' Joseph A. Califano's unique relationship with the president greatly enriches our understanding of our thirty-sixth president. Califano shows listeners LBJ's commitment to economic and social revolution, and his willingness to do whatever it took to achieve his goals. He uncorks LBJ's legislative genius and reveals the political guile it took to pass laws in civil rights, poverty, immigration reform, health, education, environmental protection, consumer protection, the arts, and communications.

A no-holds-barred account of Johnson's presidency, The Triumph and Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson is an intimate portrait of a president whose towering ambition for his country and himself reshaped America-and ultimately led to his decision to withdraw from the political arena in which he fought so hard.
