Summary
Presidential historian Dallek analyzes the brain trust whose contributions to the successes and failures of Kennedy's administration--including the Bay of Pigs, civil rights, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam--were indelible. The author delivers a striking portrait of a leader whose wise resistance to pressure and adherence to principle offers a cautionary tale for our own time
Summary
Presents an authoritative portrait of John F. Kennedy and his inner circle of advisors who, despite being the best and the brightest, ignited fiery debates behind closed doors due to their personal ambitions and clashing beliefs
