Reading this book is at the same time both inspiring and incredibly sad. His well-thought-out ideas on a range of topics, from crime and poverty to Vietnam, are truly refreshing. Indeed, they seem downright revolutionary in light of what actually took place under the Nixon Administration. Some of his discussions (China, Vietnam) seem a bit outmoded now, but are quite interesting historically. Other problems he addresses (crime and poverty, perhaps Latin America too) are unfortunately quite fresh and could be well-served if some of his proposals were enacted.
Thinking about how different history might have been had RFK become President in 1969 can really be quite demoralizing. But this book is hopeful too, and we can only hope that a younger generation will produce another leader as bright and passionate as RFK.
Today, much of this is only of historical interest, as Vietnam and other such issues are a thing of the past. But this is still worth reading for non-historians for what RFK has to say about his faith in young people to create a society that has learned form the mistakes of its elders. Pretty inspiring stuff on that level.
