Of Kennedys and Kings: Making Sense of the Sixties

Harris Wofford was Special Assistant to President Kennedy and Associate Director of the Peace Corps, and a close friend of Martin Luther King. His book is half history, half personal memoir, and an important addition to the literature of the Kennedy years. He is devastating on the subject of J. Edgar Hoover.
