Previous studies of the rise of Lyndon B. Johnson have concentrated on his ruthless careerism without giving due credit to his political success, his concern for minorities and the repressed, and his role in integrating the South into modern America. Beginning with his early days in Texas, his progress from the House of Representatives to the Senate, and his role as Majority Leader under Eisenhower, this first volume of his biography ends with his nomination as Vice President in 1960. The account presents Johnson in a sympathetic light, which reflects the good opinion in which he was held by the likes of Roosevelt and John Kennedy.
