9780061900600: The Making of the President 1960 (Harper Perennial Political Classics)

A Harper Perennial Political Classic, The Making of the President 1960 is the groundbreaking national bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the 1960 presidential campaign and the election of John F. Kennedy. With this narrative history of American politics in action, Theodore White revolutionized the way presidential campaigns are reported. Now back in print, freshly repackaged, and with a new foreword written by Robert Dallek, The Making of the President 1960 remains the most influential publication about the election of John F. Kennedy.

Review:

Students of politics and political reporting should cheer: This too- long-out-of-print classic is coming back. The book and the campaign it covered are throwbacks to an era more and more citizens, increasingly mired in sound-bites and tabloidism, are at least subconsciously desperate to resuscitate. You'll be amazed at how knowledgeable (and sometimes even wise) both White and the candidates he covers--Kennedy and Nixon--seem. Yes, it was too good to be true, but what a nice idea.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the greatest political story ever told - the epic clash between John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon, as captured in Theodore White s dramatic and groundbreaking chronicle. The Making of the President 1960 is the book that revolutionised - even created - modern political journalism. Granted intimate access to all parties involved, Theodore White crafted an almost mythic story of the battle that pitted Senator John F. Kennedy against Vice-President Richard M. Nixon - from the decisive primary battles to the history - making televised debates, the first of their kind. Magnificently detailed and exquisitely paced, The Making of the President 1960 imbues the nation s presidential election process with both grittiness and grandeur, and established a benchmark against which all new campaign reporters would measure their work. The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction - and the first entry in White s influential four-volume narrative history of American politics in action - this classic account remains the keystone of American political journalism.
