Summary:

With new research and previously unavailable interviews, The Last Campaign provides an intimate and absorbing historical narrative that goes right to the heart of America's deepest despairs-and most fiercely held dreams-and tells us more than we had understood before about this complicated man and the heightened dramas of his times. After John F. Kennedy's assassination, Robert Kennedy looked past his own pain to that of this country, and he sought to offer it hope. And when he announced that he was running for president, the country united in hope behind him. Over the action-packed eighty-two days of his campaign, Americans were inspired by Kennedy's promise to lead them toward a better time-until an assassin's bullet stopped this last great stirring public figure of the 1960s.

Clarke's The Last Campaign is the definitive account of Robert Kennedy's exhilarating and tragic 1968 campaign for president-and a revelatory history that is especially resonant now.

    I didn't know much about Bobby Kennedy. Found his campaign and his political approach fascinating. Excellent review of the man and a solid glimpse of the turbulance of the time period.
