Description - Letters to Kennedy by John Kenneth Galbraith

A document in the history of the Kennedy years, these letters give us a firsthand look at the working relationship between the president and one of his close advisors, John Kenneth Galbraith. His letters are a source of advice about economics, public policy, and the federal bureacracy. The letters stand out as a chronicle of some of the moments within the Kennedy administration. Ranging from pithy commentary on Kennedy's speech accepting the 1960 Democratic presidential nomination (and inaugurating the "New Frontier") to reflections on critical matters of state such as the Cuban missile crisis and the threat of Communism in Indochina, these letters present an intimate picture of the lives and minds of a political intellectual and an intellectual politician.
