Jack Kennedy: The Education of a Statesman
Drawing on new primary sources, this biography is the first to detail the influence of British history, literature, and culture―in particular, the ideas of Winston Churchill―on America's thirty-fifth president. Trace the friendships and forces that led to the White House and shaped Kennedy's actions there. In this intimate portrait of a leader torn between politics and principle, readers come to know the man Kennedy wanted to be and to understand his long, private struggle to become that man. 24 pages of photographs. Author: Barbara Leaming. Paperback; 542 pages.
