History remembers Robert F. Kennedy as a racial healer, a tribune for the poor, and the last progressive knight of a bygone era of American politics. But Kennedy's enshrinement in the liberal pantheon was actually the final stage of a journey that had its beginnings in the conservative 1950s. In Bobby Kennedy, Larry Tye peels away layers of myth and misconception to paint a complete portrait of this singularly fascinating figure.

Terribly swooning view. Someone estimated Bobby’s temperature at 105 degrees. Bobby at home with wife and kids three nights a week, but Wieder every night until midnight.

The period following the Civil War was one of the most controversial eras in American history. This comprehensive account of the period captures the drama of those turbulent years that played such an important role in shaping modern America.

Content sounded great. Sound quality of the narrator was absolutely terrible. Could not finish despite several tries.
