Description - In His Own Right by Joseph A. Palermo

Robert Kennedy's role in American politics during the 1960s defies definition. He was a junior senator from New York, but he was also much more. The public perceived him as possessing the intangible qualities of his brother, the slain President. From 1965 to 1968 Kennedy struggled to find his own voice in national affairs. Based on previously unseen documents, this book chronicles RFK's transformation from Cold Warrior to grass roots activist. Joseph A. Palermo focuses on the crucial nexus between 60s social activism and Kennedy's role as national leader, demonstrating how civic groups and individual activists educated him about the conflict in Southeast Asia and racial and class injustice at home.
