Summary
"Overlooked by his father and overshadowed by his brother, Bobby Kennedy was the perpetual underdog. Given the chance to become an officer like Jack, Bobby chose to join the navy as a common sailor. It was an experience that led him to connect with voters from all walks of life, and it was they who turned out for him in his 1968 campaign. RFK would prove to be both a pragmatist and an unwavering idealist. Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Matthews shines a light on RFK from his early years and his start in politics to his crucial role as attorney general in his brother's administration and his tragic run for president"--Back cover
