John Kennedy

 

An Unfinished Life, by Robert Dallek.

We highly recommend this lively and well balanced biography of John Kennedy, written in 2003 by Robert Dallek, who spent most of his career as a Professor of History at the University of California, Los Angeles. The book was a New York Times bestseller.

Dallek's final judgement on Kennedy as a President is favourable, despite early mis-steps such as the Bay of Pigs invasion. Using recently released information, Dallek deals unflinchingly with Kennedy's numerous (well concealed) medical conditions and his compulsive womanising.

A Question of Character, by Thomas C. Reeves.

We recommend this 1991 biography of John Kennedy by Thomas Reeves, a Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin, Parkside.

Written more in sorrow than in anger, the book lays bare the glaring discrepancies between Kennedy's glowing public image and his private life. Reeves also argues that Kennedy was completely in thrall to his father Joe right up to the time he became President.
