The first two volumes of the LBJ bio were terrific. He was a real piece of work, full of contradictions (I recently listened to an audiobook of some of his white house tapes, and he said, about appointing Marshall to the Supreme Court, when I put a n****r on the Court, I want em to know he's a n*****r), and Caro is great on the power-corrupting stuff. I would also highly recommend Caro's book on Robert Moses.
Caro currently has an essay on LBJ and the 1957 civil rights bill in the New Yorker.
Hey Knopf! WHERE is my book review copy????!!!!

Thanks for your comments. Does Caro discuss allegations of bribery involving Johnson and others in the Senate? Any truth to that?
