About the Author
Top customer reviews
Robert Kennedy had strong opinions regarding the problems the country was facing, and this inevitably led to conflict which will cause some to love you and others to hate you passionately. John Edgar Hoover of the F.B.I. along with President Lyndon Johnson were to who felt the wrath of Robert Kennedy and Kennedy, in turn, felt theirs as well.
The text in this book is slightly over 900 pages and certain parts are going to be of more interest to the general reader than others. Every facet of Robert Kennedy's career is covered in this book by noted author Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. who has meticulous research. I only found one typographical error (page 707 the word "basic" is inadvertently spelled "dasic".)
The author doesn't dwell on the murders of either President John Kennedy or Senator Robert Kennedy. Each is covered very sparingly. We are left to wonder how the history of the United States would have been different had Robert Kennedy been elected President. This book is a long haul. As I said it contains 900 pages of text, but if you are an admirer of Robert Kennedy you won't find a more comprehensive biography that this one by respected author Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. It is truly well worth your time.
