Product Description

Review

A haunting evocation of the fire-and-ice political partnership between Robert and John F. Kennedy and of how, despite energy and idealism, the brothers encountered tragedy by blundering into trackless wood of ambition and emotion. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
The media is still trying to pull rabbits out of the seawater-soaked hat of an unfortunate, but inconsequential heir. They shouldn't try, because there is still so much to learn about the people who really built the Kennedy mystique. I have a huge Kennedy library, but Mahoney, without pulling punches, shows us completely new sides of these complex political men, including the contradictions. In any case, he gives us one more reason to be sorry for this shabby age of Clintons, Quayles and Bushes. Especially, Robert Kennedy, who sort of was eclipsed by Jack back then, finally gets the thoughtful and detailed portrait he always deserved.

This is an amazing read. I believe it may be the best on the Kennedy's so far. Written in brillant historical novel form, Mahoney has clearly reached the pinacle of his field. There is no doubt Sons and Brothers would make for an amazing film. There has never been a book written quite like this about the Kennedys. I recommend it highly.

Provides a good understanding of the events that led to the JFK election and subsequent assassination. Covers the entanglements of the Kennedy family with the mafia, Hoover, Castro, the c.i.a. begining with the Joe Kennedy years, and ends with the assination of Bobby Kennedy.

The book is very detailed leading up to JFK's assassination & then very quickly skims through RFK's running for nomination & ends at his assassination. I've often wondered what would have happened if Bobby had made it to the White House, unfortunately, as we all know this will never be known
