ABSTRACT
The article discusses "The Passage of Power," Robert A. Caro's biography of U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. Caro points to Johnson's successes, including the national insurance program Medicare and the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964. Caro suggests that Johnson's accomplishments came not from inspiring political rhetoric, but by mobilizing ruthless political power. Topics include the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy and the tax cuts during Johnson's administration.
