Publisher Comments:

No figure in American public life has had such great expectations thrust upon him and fallen short of them so quickly. But Ted Kennedy, the gregarious, pudgy, and least academically successful of the Kennedy boys, became the most powerful senator of the last half century and the nationand#8217;s keeper of traditional liberalism. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;As Peter S. Canellos and his team of andlt;Iandgt;Boston Globe andlt;/Iandgt;reporters show in this intimate biography, Ted witnessed greater tragedy and suffered greater pressure than his siblings. He inherited a generationand#8217;s dreams and ambitions, and was expected to help confront his nationand#8217;s problems and to build a fairer society. But political rivals turned his all-too-human failings into a condemnation of his liberal politics. As the presidency eluded his grasp, Kennedy was finally free to become his own man. He transformed himself into a symbol of wisdom and perseverance. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Now, in two new chapters, andlt;Iandgt;Last Lion andlt;/Iandgt;reveals how Kennedy battled cancer while helping Barack Obama bring about the biggest reform of health care in the nationand#8217;s history, and how he said good-bye to his family, friends, and enemies. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Perceptive and carefully reported, drawing from candid interviews with the Kennedy family, andlt;Iandgt;Last Lion andlt;/Iandgt;captures magnificently the life, historic achievements, and personal redemption of Ted Kennedy, and offers a fresh assessment of his enduring legacy.
