Robert Kennedy: The Making of a Folk Hero
Robert Kennedy: The Making of a Folk Hero
By Lester David and Irene David
Dodd, Mead, 1986, 368 pp

A warm, affectionate, informal biography. The authors suggest that this nation would have been a far better place had Robert Kennedy lived and become president. Recommended as the first book to read about Kennedy, but for depth of detail and analysis see Arthur Schlesinger's Robert Kennedy and His Times (1979).
