Edward Kennedy : an intimate biography

Image of item
Book
In this groundbreaking biography, historian and journalist Burton Hersh combines extensive critical research with more than fifty years of never-before-told anecdotes and observations from his lifelong acquaintance with Edward Kennedy to create an indelible portrait of one of the finest legislators and most influential senators in American history. Hersh develops such themes as Kennedy's deep-seated fears that he was an afterthought within his powerful, driven family, as well as Kennedy's genius for conciliation, which arguably made him a more effective senator than either of his older brothers. This book is richly laden with disclosures not made while Kennedy was alive, from amazing details pertaining to the accident at Chappaquiddick to Kennedy's behind-the-scenes manipulations that brought down Richard Nixon. This revelatory account reinterprets Kennedy's public and private personas.--From publisher description.
