The Johnson Treatment
It's been a dozen years since Robert Caro's previous book about Johnson, and now he's back, this time with Master of the Senate, an exhaustive and exhausting examination of the United States Senate during the years of Johnson's time there.
Books Story  May 3, 2002, by Dick Holland
"...The first volume of Robert Caro's protracted meditation on the dark side of Lyndon Johnson, The Years of Lyndon Johnson: The Path to Power, was published 20 years ago to almost universal acclaim.

The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons From the Life of Robert S. McNamara
Robert S. McNamara, the confounding former secretary of defense during the Vietnam era, may be visionary filmmaker Errol Morris' best interview "get" ever.
Film Review  February 27, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Given all this, Robert S. McNamara, the former secretary of defense under Presidents John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, may prove to be Morris’ ultimate interview "get." Morris, like others who came of age in the Sixties during the years of the American involvement in the war in Vietnam, probably still harbors a deep and abiding anger for McNamara, who is often described as the "architect" of the American policy in Vietnam..."

Miller got 52% and came in third but was immediately elected mayor by his colleagues.

Aside from that laudable aspect, LBJ: A Life, by Irwin Unger and Debi Unger, is a biography that stands on its own merits, presenting a comprehensive, objective, and insightful chronicle of LBJ's life and career from cradle to grave -- which is a mighty big job when you think about it...."
