On May 6, political historian Robert Caro will appear on C-SPAN and discuss his fourth volume of his on-going, multi-volume biography "The Years of Lyndon Johnson."
C-SPAN spoke with Mr. Caro in 2008 in his New York City office about his writing style and his latest work on the LBJ installment. He also spoke to the Book TV at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library on May 13, 2003.
After leaving a career as a journalist, Mr. Caro gained national recognition in 1974 with his first book of New York political boss Robert Moses. He then began work on a multi-volume biography of President Lyndon Johnson, picking up a Pulitzer in 2003 for the most recent volume, Master of the Senate. The fourth and fifth volume in the series will deal with Johnson's Vice Presidency and Presidency.
He has researched the life of the former president using the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library's papers for 26 years and described to Book TV how he has used the Johnson papers in his multi-volume biography, "The Years of Lyndon Johnson."
