Description of The Passage of Power by Robert A. Caro PDF
“The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson” is very well written and a pleasure to read. Robert A. Caro is the author of this book. This book provides the whole story, including the actions behind the scenes, of the historic events. The Passage of Power” provides a great perspective on the 1960 Presidential Campaign, Johnson’s painful years as Vice President, the Kennedy assassination and then Johnson’s masterful assumption of the Presidency. Along the way, the reader also gets a great look at the Kennedys particularly John and Bobby. The disdain that the “Camelot Crowd” had for Johnson is well described.
The absolute and mutual hatred between Bobby and Lyndon was truly amazing and Caro covers it all in detail. At times Caro’s narrative is a bit repetitive, but this is probably necessary both to drive home key points and to remind readers of things Caro discussed years ago in previous volumes. Although the Austin TV station is mentioned to some degree, the mechanics of how Johnson became wealthy are not covered very well. Finally, with the exception of the Bobby Kennedy discussion near the end, Caro pretty much dismisses assassination conspiracy theories on a “trust me on this one” basis without serious discussion. Overall, this is a great series and a great book.
