The first volume in Robert Caro’s The Years of Lyndon Johnson, hailed as ‘the greatest biography of our era’, this is the story of the rise to national power of a desperately poor young man from the Texas Hill Country.

Revealed in extraordinary detail is the genesis of that almost superhuman drive, energy and ambition which set LBJ apart.

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography, The Path to Power charts his boyhood through the years of the Depression to his debut as a Congressman, his heartbreaking defeat in his first race for the Senate and his attainment, nonetheless, at the age of 31 of the power for which he hungered.

In this riveting book we are shown more clearly than ever before the true nature of political genius.
