Representative sampling of the more than 300 speeches Robert F. Kennedy delivered during a 13-year public career constitute this volume. Entries were selected by Guthman, a Pultizer Prize-winning journalist and one-time press secretary to Kennedy, and Allen, a speechwriter who as a teenager campaigned for Kennedy in his 1968 quest for the White House. The editors seek to inspire, in particular, those too young to remember RFK. "In an age where celebrity is measured by the quarter hour and heroism seldom survives the evening news," they write, "we hope young people will continue to be intrigued and inspired by a man who served only three and a half years in elective office, never became President, yet continues to be one of our most admired leaders 25 years after his murder." This handy compendium is recommended for academic and large public libraries.
