Bargain Book Copy
The first biographer since Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., to see RFK's private papers and to newly interview Kennedy's closest aides and advisers, Evan Thomas reveals Robert Kennedy as an extraordinarily complex man who was at once kind and cruel, devious and honest, fearful and brave - and who, though he died just as he was reaching for ultimate power, remains one of the century's most fascinating figures. He was "Good Bobby," who, as his brother Ted eulogized him, "saw wrong and tried to right it . . . saw suffering and tried to heal it." And "Bad Bobby," the ruthless and manipulative bully of countless conspiracy theories. Thomas's unvarnished but sympathetic and fair-minded portrayal is packed with new details about Kennedy's early life and his behind-the-scenes machinations, including new revelations about the 1960 and 1968 presidential campaigns, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and his long struggles with J. Edgar Hoover and Lyndon Johnson.
