About the Author

Robert F. Kennedy was one of the best-known political figures during the 1960's, globally admired for his personal toughness, and passionate advocacy on behalf of civil rights, economic opportunity, and peace. He ran his brother John's successful campaign for the US Presidency in 1960, and then became the nation's second-youngest Attorney General. After a successful New York run for the US Senate, he pursued the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968. He was assassinated in June of that year, at age 42. Rick Allen is a media and technology executive and has been a speechwriter, fundraiser, and state campaign manager for several presidential and Senate candidates. He also served as Deputy Assistant to President Clinton, helping to create AmeriCorps. Ed Guthman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, was Robert Kennedy's Press Secretary at the Department of Justice and the Senate, and a close personal friend. Co-editor of the original edition, he passed away in 2008.

Reviews

"This...perfectly timed [book]...will be for many readers like the welcome, delicious equivalent of a large pitcher of iced water during a long, smoggy summer heat wave...[it] should not be approached as a eulogy for a fallen statesman...[but]...better read...as a blueprint for the future." -- Vital Speeches
"Rich background information on policy and historical context introduces each chapter and frames each speech, which reveal Kennedy's appeal to Democrats and Republicans, minorities and the middle class." -- Library Journal
"Remarkable...a book worth getting and reading as well as passing down from one generation to another." -- Family Choice Award
