Beschreibung

An illuminating and comprehensive look at the remarkable-and tragically shortened-career of one of America's most promising leaders
Structured around the 1968 Democratic presidential campaign, The Unfinished Odyssey of Robert Kennedy offers an in-depth exploration of Robert Kennedy, both as a man and a politician.
Kennedy's mass appeal to minority groups, his antiwar stance, and his support from Catholics made him unlike any other politician of his stature in the late 1960s. Acclaimed journalist David Halberstam dives into Kennedy's career, covering his work as US attorney general and campaign manager for his brother John, his run for a New York state senate seat, and his candidacy in the 1968 Democratic presidential primary. Through this crucial period, he charts Kennedy's evolution as one of the nation's most clear-headed progressives, ultimately revealing a man who-even now-personifies the shift toward a more equal America.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of David Halberstam including rare images from the author's estate.



Autorentext

David Halberstam (1934-2007) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author. He is best known for his brazen coverage of the Vietnam War for the New York Times and for his twenty-one nonfiction books, which cover a wide array of topics such as the plight of Detroit and the auto industry, and the incomparable success of Michael Jordan. The recipient of the Mailer Prize for distinguished journalism, Halberstam wrote for numerous publications throughout his career and, according to journalist George Packer, single-handedly set the standard of "the reporter as fearless truth teller." Halberstam died in 2007.
