The Kennedy Brothers: A Legacy in Photographs

The Kennedy Brothers: A Legacy in Photographs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through more than 120 stunning photographs and the text of Pulitzer Prize-winner Walter Mears, The Kennedy Brothers provides a fascinating look at the lives of perhaps the most influential men in modern American politics. From Joe Jr.'s predetermined course to Jack's unlikely success and from Robert's reluctant but rapid rise to Ted's long road to becoming a lion in the Senate, the story of the Kennedy brothers is an ongoing part of modern American history. Included are highlights from their childhoods in New York, Hyannis Port, and London; their days at Harvard, in the Senate, and in the Oval Office; and their roles as devoted members of the Kennedy clan.

About the Author

Hal Buell is a photo editor with more than 40 years' experience at the Associated Press, where he was in charge of the photo wire service for 25 years.  His previous books include Moments: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographs; Photo Oops!; World War II Album: The Complete Chronicle of the World's Greatest Conflict; and We Were There: Vietnam.

Walter R. Mears, an Associated Press legend, reported on national politics from 1960 to 2001 as one of the "boys on the bus" and was said to be the most influential political writer of his time because his AP stories appeared in virtually every American newspaper.  He recieved the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting in 1977 for his coverage of the 1976 presidential campaign and election.  He retired after the 2001 presidential inauguration and now lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
