The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America, by Thurston Clarke


I have always been a fan of the Kennedys, but really started out as a JFK fan. Over the years, I've become more interersted in RFK - most likely after I was able to hear RFK, Jr. speak on the University of Michigan campus while I was taking an environmental law class. This is an account that opened my eyes to RFKs positions and the amazing caring person he was. It was interesting to learn he didn't have friends in the unions, the feud between him and McCarthy, and his campaigning style. I highly recommend this book. Sometimes, I wondered how some of the items would have been remembered by the author and those interviewed had RFK not died.
