About this title

Synopsis:

Ted Kennedy is the last surviving brother of the clan's storied generation - a generation that included, among nine siblings, Jack and Bobby as well as Ted. With the senator's death, a chapter in a thunderous saga comes to an end, a chapter that featured the very greatest triumphs and the darkest tragedies. In this commemorative book from the editors of "LIFE", the Kennedys' remarkable story is retold - the clan's rise from the poverty of America's great immigrant stock to the highest heights of power and influence. The constant drama and great glamour that are hallmarks of the Kennedy saga are captured by "LIFE" in a riveting narrative and characteristically stunning photography, much of which first appeared in the pages of the storied magazine. In this bookazine, all the Kennedy come to life.

Book Description:

With the passing of Edward Moore Kennedy on August 25, 2009, a climactic chapter in a thunderous American political saga came to an end, a chapter that featured the very greatest triumphs and the darkest tragedies. In this commemorative book, the Kennedys’ remarkable story is retold—the clan’s rise from the grinding poverty of America’s immigrant stock to the highest reaches of power and influence. With the driven patriarch Joe piloting the political machine, the second son of the Kennedy’s greatest generation, Jack, achieved the unthinkable and became the nation’s first Catholic president. Then came Bobby and Ted—cultural icons as much as legislators, each of the men instantly knowable by his first name—and the Kennedy’s epic extended, with ever more glory and ever more sorrow. In this new book from the editors of LIFE, the constant drama of the Kennedy tale are captured in a riveting narrative and characteristically stunning photography, much of which first appeared in the pages of the renowned magazine. The great moments on the public stage are here, as are intimate photographs of warm family gatherings on Cape Cod and at Hickory Hill. In LIFE The Kennedys, which gives a complete account starting with the desperate 19th century flight from the famine in Ireland through the late senator’s recent funeral, all the characters come to life—the legendary politician called Honey Fitz; the ruthless Joe; the matriarch Rose; the charismatic Joe Jr., killed in World War II; the famous trio of brothers; their remarkable sisters, including the heroic Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who died just before her younger brother in August; the next generation—John Jr., Caroline, Bobby Jr. and their many kin—who have also experienced life’s joy and pain. The Kennedys have legions of Americans who are devoted to them and their legacy, and, yes, they have their detractors. But one point is inarguable: In the history of our country, there has never been a family like them. Their story is truly Shakespearean.
