Sweeping biographies abound, authorized and nonauthorized, regarding Ted Kennedy. They tend either to applaud him for his ideals or criticize him for his personal flaws. The present work differs. Using historical tools and legal analysis, it closely examines ten major pieces of legislation Kennedy sponsored or strongly backed as well as the attempt at immigration reform he spearheaded with John McCain. This is a balanced and thoroughly researched book. By tracing the legislation from their introduction through passage, and analyzing the actual language of the legislation, the book sheds considerable light both on the unintended consequences through time of the legislation as well as consequences Kennedy intended in attempting to promote reform and combat discrimination.

About the Author:

Craig A. Horowitz is an employment lawyer living in Santa Monica, California.

Review:

"A thoughtful book, documenting how the career of a civil rights icon helped transform our society." --Michael Waterstone, Professor, Loyola Law School Los Angeles

"Horowitz inspires a new generation, unfamiliar with the passionate and bipartisan artistry of the liberal lion, Ted Kennedy. Given the increased interest in non-fiction texts, this book will offer high school students a powerful resource in their study of American politics." --Bonnie L. Kaplan, co-director of the Hudson Valley Writing Project at SUNY New Paltz.
