A public need has grown for evidence that would justify an ever more derogatory image of LBJ. This need has been served mainly by journalists of varied talents and methods with books of several degrees of fairness and balance or lack of both. The latest, longest, and most ambitious of these is a multivolumed work in progress by Robert A. Caro that only gets him to the Senate in its second large volume.

No serious, full-scale biography by a qualified historian has come forth until the appearance of the recent book by Robert Dallek. It does not neglect the tawdry side of Johnson's political career, including much that is revealed for the first time.
