About the Edition

Presidential historian Dallek analyzes the brain trust whose contributions to the successes and failures of Kennedy"s administration-- including the Bay of Pigs, civil rights, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam-- were indelible. He delivers a striking portrait of a leader whose wise resistance to pressure and adherence to principle offers a cautionary tale for our own time.
