"The life of Edward M. Kennedy is a chronicle of our country's past forty years - and this biography offers unprecedented insight into the many events of our times. Adam Clymer of The New York Times has followed Senator Kennedy through his high and lows to his present years as patriarch of the Kennedy family. Edward M. Kennedy focuses squarely on the Senator's career, addressing the difficulties he has encountered with personal matters but studying the influence his work has had in a broader context." "The list of Senator Kennedy's accomplishments includes his roles in the nuclear freeze, fighting for the rights of the disabled, helping to end apartheid in South Africa, and, most recently, the minimum wage increase and the Family Leave Act. These political victories speak for themselves, yet it is his personal life that has drawn as much attention. From Chappaquiddick to his public divorce to his involvement in his nephew William Kennedy Smith's Palm Beach incident, he has struggled to maintain his own dignity and that of his very visible family."--BOOK JACKET.
