A not unexpectedly sycophantic account from one of the Kennedys' most enduring apologists; nonetheless, a very worthwhile read and an insight from inside the camp. For all their flaws they were agents for positive change in many areas. ( )

Yes, Schlesinger was definetely in the Kennedy corner, but so was I,
so I can't help being totally enthralled by this book.

And neither can I help feeling sad because it took just one creep to change the course of history- for the worst! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618219285, Paperback)

Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., chronicles the short life of the Kennedy family's second presidential hopeful in "a story that leaves the reader aching for what cannot be recaptured" (Miami Herald). Schlesinger's account vividly recalls the forces that shaped Robert Kennedy, from his position as the third son of a powerful Irish Catholic political clan to his concern for issues of social justice in the turbulent 1960s. ROBERT KENNEDY AND HIS TIMES is "a picture of a deeply compassionate man hiding his vulnerability, drawn to the underdogs and the unfortunates in society by his life experiences and sufferings" (Los Angeles Times).
