Publisher's Summary

One of America's greatest investigative reporters brings to life the gripping, no-holds-barred clash of two American titans: Robert Kennedy and his nemesis, Jimmy Hoffa.

From 1957 to 1964, Robert Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa channeled nearly all of their considerable powers into destroying each other. Kennedy's battle with Hoffa burst into the public consciousness with the 1957 Senate Rackets Committee hearings and intensified when his brother named him attorney general in 1961. RFK put together a "Get Hoffa" squad within the Justice Department, devoted to destroying one man. But Hoffa, with nearly unlimited Teamster funds, was not about to roll over.

Drawing upon a treasure trove of previously secret and undisclosed documents, James Neff has crafted a brilliant, heart-pounding epic of crime and punishment, a saga of venom and relentlessness and two men willing to do anything to demolish each other.

Neither organized labor or the Department of Justice at their best.

The book is well researched and plainly written. It is not elegantly written.
I am very familiar with the story and the author captures it well. However it will not have a broad audience in today's market.

The Seven Year Battle between Kennedy and Hoffa

A meticulously researched book which blows the lid on the seven year Senate Rackets investigation battle between Robert Kennedy and Teamsters Union boss Jimmy Hoffa. I found the story detail to be fascinating as an insight into labour and business relations in the US between the late fifties and mid sixties. This book has got everything if the subject interests you - wire taps, the mob, jury tampering and more.
