Synopses & Reviews
Dallek's bestselling biography of the former US President comes into paperback after impressive sales in hardback last year. This insightful memoir challenges the traditional thinking on Kennedy, particularly the view that he was a robust and healthy man when he was, in fact, a frequently sick figure to whom last rites were administered on several occasions. "A brilliant account of one of America's most charismatic twentieth-century presidents" "Sunday Telegraph"
Mass-market edition of the first authoritative single-volume biography of John F Kennedy to be written in nearly four decades. Drawing upon first-hand sources and never-before-opened archives, prize-winning historian Robert Dallek reveals more than we ever knew about his life, his presidency and his legacy.
