It is impossible to live the kind of life that John Fitzgerald Kennedy lived - one of privilege, power, and pain - and not acquire a few enemies along the way. Yet few figures in American history have as oddly conflicted relationships with their political foes as did our 35th President. Historian Thomas Whalen's book sheds light on each of Kennedy's enemies, detailing the ways in which Kennedy's more fractious relationships evolved over time, affected his Presidency, and his personal life.
