Summary
John F. Kennedy was a new kind of president. Forty-three when he was inaugurated in 1961, he personified what he called the "New Frontier" as the United States entered the 1960s. But the reality of Kennedy's achievements was much more complex than the legend. Kennedy's life, and his violent and sudden death, reshaped our view of the presidency. Brinkley gives us a full picture of the man, his times, and his enduring legacy
