American Legends: The Life of Robert F. Kennedy

ISBN: 9781492892984
*Includes pictures of Bobby and important people, places, and events in his life. *Includes a Table of Contents A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. In some ways, Robert Francis Kennedy (1925–1968) is the forgotten Kennedy, eclipsed in life while working in his brother John’s administration, eclipsed in death both by his older brother’s assassination and his younger brother’s long, influential career in the Senate as a liberal lion. And yet, the politics of the 1960s and the ultimate legacy of the Kennedys, including the “Kennedy Curse”, would have been incomplete without Bobby’s place in the narrative.
