Lyndon B. Johnson: Portrait of a President

Further Reading

As I stated in the Preface, this volume is an abridgment of Lone Star Rising: Lyndon Johnson and His Times, 1908–1960 (New York: Oxford University Press, 1991) and Flawed Giant: Lyndon Johnson and His Times, 1961–1973 (New York: Oxford University Press, 1998). These studies rest on fourteen years of research and writing. The Sources section of each volume lists the vast array of manuscripts and oral histories underpinning it. Most of these materials are in the Lyndon B. Johnson Library in Austin, Texas, but a number of other archives contain important materials relating to Johnson's life and political career.

For additional biographies and monographs on specific subjects relating to Johnson's political actions, see Craig H. Roell et al., Lyndon B. Johnson: A Bibliography (2 vols.: 1984 and 1988). A good general starting point for the study of Lyndon B. Johnson's personality and public life is Doris Kearns, Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream (1976); other general studies are Paul K. Conkin, Big Daddy from the Pedernales: Lyndon Baines Johnson (1986), and Bruce J. Schulman, Lyndon B. Johnson and American Liberalism (1995).


pre-presidential years

Chapter 1: Origins. See Part One (chapters 1–5) of Lone Star Rising. Also see Robert Caro, The Path to Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol. 1 (1982). Chapter 2: The Congressman. See Part Two (chapters 6–10) of Lone Star Rising. Also see Robert Caro, Means of Ascent: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol. 2 (1990); both Caro volumes include discussions of Johnson's controversial 1948 election to the United States Senate.

Chapter 3: The Senator. See Part Three (chapters 11–15) of Lone Star Rising and Caro's Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol. 3 (2002). An older but still valuable book on the Senate years is Rowland Evans and Robert Novak, Lyndon B. Johnson: The Exercise of Power (1968).
