In his best-selling study, syndicated columnist and talk show personality Christopher Matthews combines newly-uncovered information and acute political analysis to portray two stunning, ultimately tragic figures who defined a generation. In language that is always accessible, Matthews vividly traces the lasting impacts John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon had on each other's political campaigns-and their presidencies. Despite their differences in upbringing and party affiliation, Kennedy and Nixon shared a warm friendship when they arrived in Washington in 1946. For over a decade, they would rejoice in each other's triumphs. But by the bitter presidential election of 1960, this cordial relationship was shattered. The resulting enmity would influence the mood of the nation for years to come. Christopher Matthews has been a presidential speech writer and a top aide to the Speaker of the House. His insider's knowledge of Washington makes Kennedy and Nixon a fascinating book for layman and history buffs alike. Nelson Runger's meticulous narration conveys all the powerful clarity of Matthews' writing.
