Kennedy V Nixon

"For almost half a century "The Making of the President, 1960" has stood as the standard work on this topic. Kallina has exposed the mythology of Theodore White's description of Camelot. For the first time we have an unbiased portrayal of what happened before, during, and after that pivotal election."--Irving F. Gellman, author of "The Contender: Richard Nixon, the Congress Years, 1946-1952" "Readers will never look at the historic 1960 election the same way again."--Matthew Corrigan, author of "Race, Religion, and Economic Change in the Republican South" "Kennedy v. Nixon" is a book for everyone who "thinks "they know what happened in the pivotal election year of 1960. For fifty years we've accepted Theodore White's premise (from "The Making of the President, 1960") that Kennedy ran a brilliant campaign while Nixon committed blunder after blunder. But White the journalist was a Kennedy partisan and helped establish the myth of Camelot. Now, five decades later, Edmund Kallina offers a fresh overview of the election's most critical and controversial events. Based upon research conducted at four presidential libraries--those of Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon--Kallina is able to make observations and share insights unavailable in the immediate aftermath of one of the closest races in American presidential history. He describes the strengths and mistakes of "both" camps, and examines the impact of civil rights, Cold War tensions, and the televised presidential debates on an election that still looms large in both the political history and the popular imagination of the United States.
