About the Author:

James W. Hilty, Professor of History at Temple University, has written exclusively about the Kennedys including John F. Kennedy: An Idealist Without Illusion. He has also provided political commentaries for various publications including the Philadelphia Inquirer and served as historical consultant for an NBC News syndicated documentary, "Robert F. Kennedy: The Man, The Myth, and the Memories," narrated by Tom Brokaw.

Review:

"...a highly recommended book."-The Historian "The book's greatest strength is its straightforward, thorough examination of the major controversies surrounding John and Robert Kennedy."-The American Historical Review "Hilty offers an interesting take on a much-written-about chapter in U.S. history."-Publishers Weekly "A thousand and one Kennedy books are out there, one for every day of John F. Kennedy's mythical reign. But this one, written by a historian, actually provides a useful service. One of its main themes-am I truly my brother's keeper?-is timeless. And the other-exploring the obligations of the U.S. attorney general-is current."-The Baltimore Sun "Robert Kennedy: Brother Protector is a splendid book. Hilty tells familiar stories with original interpretations, lacing his discussion with lucid tales of RFK's conflicts with Roy Cohn, Martin Luther King, Lyndon B. Johnson, and George Wallace. He challenges the myths and lore of the Kennedy past, from alleged voter fraud in Illinois to RFK's rumored affair with Marilyn Monroe.... The book will give pause to Kennedy admirers and detractors alike, for it is the most intelligently analyzed account of RFK to date."-The Journal of American History "James Hilty offers an important new study of RFK as lifelong defender and promoter of his brother, President John Kennedy. This fascinating, perceptive biography reveals a man struggling in his brother's shadow as he strives to confirm his own individuality as campaign manager, attorney general, and younger brother/confidant."-Library Journal "John and Robert Kennedy's close personal and working relationship was unique in the annals of American public service. James W. Hilty, focusing on Robert as 'brother protector,' has written a thorough, thoughtful account based on scrupulous research and a historian's search for the truth."-Edwin Guthman, former press secretary to RFK and co-editor of Robert Kennedy in His Own Words: The Unpublished Recollections of the Kennedy Years
