The Years of Lyndon Johnson: Means of ascent
In the second volume, the author reveals some of the more extreme grotesqueries of American politics. For this is the time when Johnson created for himself a much exaggerated record as a war hero, when he and his wife Lady Bird made themselves rich by juggling radio station licences. And it is the time when Johnson fought for - and won, by 87 dubious votes - his first seat in the US Senate, in an election whose c orruption was legendary even by Texas standards.
