Summary
"Bobby Kennedy was a personal hero to a multitude of Americans. As the train carrying his body headed to Washington, whites and blacks alike stood along the tracks, saluting him. They loved him as a fellow patriot who believed a great country could also be a good one. Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC's Hardball, has discovered what made him who he was...Drawing on extensive research and intimate interviews, Matthews shines a light on all the important moments of Bobby's life: his upbringing, his start in politics, his crucial role fighting for civil rights as attorney general, and his tragic run for president."--Dust jacket flap
Summary
A portrait of Robert F. Kennedy depicts him as a perpetual family underdog, sharing insights into his decision to join the Navy as a common sailor, his ability to connect with voters from all walks of life, and his assassination during his 1968 campaign
