The tumultuous decade of the 1960s began with promise and hope when John F. Kennedy (JFK) became the youngest elected President in American history. Kennedy's "New Frontier" promised youthful and dynamic leadership, heading into the latter half of the century. A thousand days into the Kennedy presidency, an assassin's bullets shattered the dreams of an idealistic generation. After the Kennedy assassination, Vice-President Lyndon Johnson (LBJ) was catapulted into the Oval Office, much to the chagrin of JFK's younger brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. His idyllic life disrupted by fate, RFK viewed Johnson as a petty interloper, who had seized JFK's rightful place in history. Ever fearful that Robert Kennedy would attempt to regain the presidential throne, LBJ's paranoia ultimately compromised his judgment and contributed to his downfall. "Bad Blood: Lyndon B. Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and the Tumultuous 1960s" chronicles the personal and political feud between two powerful and controversial twentieth century icons.

Bad Blood: Lyndon B. Johsnon, Robert F. Kennedy, and the Tumultous 1960s details the person and political feud between two twentieth century political icons. History comes alive in recounting the story of two men blinded and driven by ambition. The reader will relieve the controversial, often tragic event of the 1960s, including the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Robert F. Kennedy, the Civil Rights movement, and the Vietnam War.
Reading like a novel, Bad Blood proves that fact is often stranger than fiction.
