Publisher Comments:

In this, the first comprehensive history of Kennedys civil rights record over the course of his entire political career, Nick Bryant shows that Kennedys shrewd handling of the race issue in his early congressional campaigns blinded him as President to the intractability of the simmering racial crisis in America. By focusing on mainly symbolic gestures, Kennedy missed crucial opportunities to confront the obstructionist Southern bloc and to enact genuine reform, his inertia emboldening white supremacists and forced black activists to adopt increasingly militant tactics.

Synopsis:

The definitive account of JFK's engagement with the race issue--from his first campaign in Boston through his presidency--reveals a disturbing portrait of a great American icon

Synopsis:

Bryant's account of John F. Kennedy's engagement with the race issue reveals that Kennedy's cynicism caused him to neglect crucial opportunities to defuse the most explosive domestic crisis of his era.
