“Perhaps the best of all the books on JFK. Jack speaks to us again across the years, in words still highly relevant to our times.”
-Senator Edward M. Kennedy
Let Every Nation Know is the first book of its kind-a political biography crafted from Kennedy’s own words and the era he defined, from the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis to the Nixon-Kennedy debates and Civil Rights. Combining a remarkable audio CD with the insights of two of America’s most notable historians, the result is a unique look at the world-changing words and presidency of John F. Kennedy.
“May be the best concise account of the Kennedy presidency ever written. But if their superb text is not enough to convince post-1963 Americans that JFK deserves to be ranked among the greatest presidents, the audio CD of his speeches that accompanies the book virtually makes the case on its own and will be a revelation to anyone whose familiarity with his oratory is limited to his magnificent inaugural address.”
“Words are the tools of politics - and this marvelous work again lets us hear a master wield them with the skill and passion that made him great.”
- Joe Conason, journalist and author of The Hunting of the President and Big Lies
“I had forgotten just how powerful these speeches were, but the CD brings them to life once more and Dallek and Golway have done a masterful job of putting them into context.”
