The Torch Is Passed: The Kennedy Brothers and American Liberalism
The Torch Is Passed: The Kennedy Brothers and American Liberalism
By David Burner and Thomas R. West
Atheneum, 1984, 253 pp.

The authors see John as a politician first and a liberal afterward; Robert as moving to the left out of conviction, not mere expediency; and Edward as the hardworking heir. The domestic side is handled with a surer touch than foreign policy.
