Description
An illuminating and comprehensive look at the remarkable--and tragically shortened--career of one of America's most promising leaders Structured around the 1968 Democratic presidential campaign, The Unfinished Odyssey of Robert Kennedy offers an in-depth exploration of Robert Kennedy, both as a man and a politician. Kennedy's mass appeal to minority groups, his antiwar stance, and his support from Catholics made him unlike any other politician of his stature in the late 1960s. Acclaimed journalist David Halberstam dives into Kennedy's career, covering his work as US attorney general and campaign manager for his brother John, his run for a New York state senate seat, and his candidacy in the 1968 Democratic presidential primary. Through this crucial period, he charts Kennedy's evolution as one of the nation's most clear-headed progressives, ultimately revealing a man who--even now--personifies the shift toward a more equal America. This ebook features an illustrated biography of David Halberstam including rare images from the author's estate.
