NEW YORK (AP) - The fourth of Robert A. Caro’s Lyndon Johnson books is coming out in May. And a fifth volume will be written for what was supposed to be a three-, then four-part series.
“The Passage of Power” will arrive nine years after the previous volume, “Master of the Senate.” The announcement was made Tuesday by publisher Alfred A. Knopf. Over the past three decades, Caro’s three Johnson books have sold more than 1.5 million copies and have won several awards, including the Pulitzer Prize.
The new book will focus on the years 1958 to 1964, from the time Johnson began seeking the presidency, through his years as vice president under John F. Kennedy, to becoming president after JFK’s assassination.
