书籍简介:

The most riveting political biography of our time, Robert A. Caro’s life of Lyndon B. Johnson, continues. Master of the Senate takes Johnson’s story through one of its most remarkable periods: his twelve years, from 1949 through 1960, in the United States Senate. Once the most august and revered body in politics, by the time Johnson arrived the Senate had become a parody of itself and an obstacle that for decades had blocked desperately needed liberal legislation. Caro shows how Johnson’s brilliance, charm, and ruthlessness enabled him to become the youngest and most powerful Majority Leader in history and how he used his incomparable legislative genius–seducing both Northern liberals and Southern conservatives–to pass the first Civil Rights legislation since Reconstruction. Brilliantly weaving rich detail into a gripping narrative, Caro gives us both a galvanizing portrait of Johnson himself and a definitive and revelatory study of the workings of legislative power.

书友短评:

@ GW_Parables 三级跳 终于等到senate了..多读几次.之前看的时候 只是为了sensational fun…现在对政治的理解略深刻了一些..读起来趣味都不一样了。 @ ZaphodS 记得我第一个面试的interviewer是个POLS major,告诉我她最喜欢的总统是Lyndon B Johnson,那时我只知道华盛顿林肯克林顿肯尼迪,想这是谁啊,名不见经传。其实这个家伙才是最美国式的美国总统吧。 @ №R5 Audiobook @ Bates 可能是四卷中最精彩的一本。Frank Underwood活脱脱就是从这书里蹦出来的。 @ 胡串 一千多页的砖头,我读过的最好的历史传记,细节,文笔,考据。。。 @ Akira 把这本啃下来确实值得 @ №R5 Audiobook @ QuietAmbassa 目前该系列中最喜欢的一本,LBJ在senate中真是如鱼得水而且made an impact @ Bates 可能是四卷中最精彩的一本。Frank Underwood活脱脱就是从这书里蹦出来的。 @ 聪明 2016.2.24想读,太精彩了感慨万千。四月份分割好电子书,不过因为毕业搬家入职工作,一度感觉再也不会读完了。才发现是下一部的快两倍长,难怪觉得去年读另一本的时候好像快很多呢
