The Kennedy Legacy: Jack, Bobby and Ted and a Family Dream Fulfilled

The Kennedy Legacy: Jack, Bobby and Ted and a Family Dream Fulfilled Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John, Robert, and Ted Kennedy's individual stories can be seen as essentially one, each successive brother striving to fulfill the interrupted promise of the brother before. The closing of Ted Kennedy's chapter in Americas political and cultural life means that, for the first time perhaps, the real measure of the Kennedy legacy can finally be taken. This is a story of a brotherhood in three acts: Act I is John F. Kennedys presidency, as seen from Teds front-row seat. Act II is Robert Kennedys five brief years as the family standard bearer, including his tenure in the Senate with his brother Ted and the memorable 82-day presidential campaign that redefined the Kennedy legacy. Act III is Teds 40-plus years in the Senate as keeper of the flame.

How did the brothers pass the torch to each other? What have the three brothers left us collectively? And who carries the torch forward now? The Kennedy Legacy compellingly answers these questions and much more.

Synopsis:

Bzdek examines John, Robert, and Ted Kennedy's legacy on the American political landscape.
