schema:description"Journalist Talbot sheds a dramatic new light on the tumultuous inner life of the Kennedy presidency and its stunning aftermath. The book begins on the shattering afternoon of November 22, 1963, as a grief-stricken Robert Kennedy urgently demands answers about the assassination of his brother, then shifts back in time, revealing the shadowy conflicts that tore apart the Kennedy administration, pitting the young president and his even younger brother against their own national security apparatus. The Kennedy brothers and their small circle of trusted advisors repeatedly thwarted Washington's warriors, the hard-line generals and spymasters hell-bent on a showdown with the Communists--the Kennedys pushing instead for a peaceful resolution to the Cold War. The tensions within the Kennedy administration were heading for an explosive climax, when a burst of gunfire in Dallas terminated John F. Kennedy's presidency.--From publisher description."@en
