RFK: Collected Speeches
Robert F. Kennedy died from an assassin's bullet on June 6, 1968. Commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary of that tragedy, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Edwin O. Guthman, a confidant of RFK's, and C. Richard Allen have assembled a moving and eloquent volume of his speeches.
Arranged chronologically and woven together with a narrative that places the speeches in global and national as well as personal context - and illustrated with sixteen pages of photographs, some never before published - this first collection of its kind serves also as a stirring history of two turbulent American decades.
Public interest in the Kennedys has only grown stronger as the years have passed. And RFK's voice is as relevant today as it was when he first spoke out on individual responsibility, personal courage, compassion for those less fortunate, and all of the critical issues of his time - and ours.
