9780141976587: John F. Kennedy: An Unfinished Life 1917-1963

Updated edition of the authoritative single-volume biography of John F. Kennedy. Drawing upon first-hand sources and never-before-opened archives, prize-winning historian Robert Dallek reveals more than we ever knew about Jack Kennedy, forever changing the way we think about his life, his presidency and his legacy.

Dallek also discloses that, while labouring to present an image of robust good health, Kennedy was secretly in and out of hospitals throughout his life, soill that he was administered last rites on several occasions.

He never shies away from Kennedy's weaknesses, but also brilliantly explores his strengths. The result is a full portrait of a bold, brave and truly human John F. Kennedy.

Review:

""One of the most engrossing biographies I have ever read.... AN UNFINISHED LIFE "is nothing less than a masterpiece."

"Comprehensive, judicious, evenhanded, original. "An Unfinished Life" has the sober judgment and nuanced accuracy that make it ring true in all the controversial and tricky parts." Jack Newfield, ""Los Angeles Times"""

"Comprehensive, judicious, evenhanded, original. An Unfinished Life has the sober judgment and nuanced accuracy that make it ring true in all the controversial and tricky parts."--Jack Newfield, Los Angeles Times

"An intimate portrait indeed . . . unexpected and important. . . . This is nothing if not a profile in courage."--Ted Widmer, New York Times Book Review

"It's hard to believe that someone could find anything new to say about John F. Kennedy, but Dallek succeeds in this riveting and well-documented biography."--The New Yorker

"One of the most engrossing biographies I have ever read. . . . An Unfinished Life is nothing less than a masterpiece."--David Herbert Donald, author of Lincoln

"Neither debunking nor further mythologizing, Dallek fashions a balanced but fast-paced tale of sex and power that scribes from Shakespeare to Jacqueline Susann would have killed for."--Steve Dougherty, People
