Abstract:

More than a year before the election of John F. Kennedy, Theodore H. White began to explore the secret planning and private aspirations of seven men, each of whom, in his own way, found his dreams tormented by the power that might be his in the White House. By spring, White had begun to follow the candidates through the early jousting of the primaries. Continuing through the conventions, the campaigns and the final drama of election night, he fashioned a work of contemporary history that highlights the decisions, the acts, the accidents, that created an American President, and also the cold political realities of a country upon whose decision the world of freedom waits. At once a political study of power in America, and a chronicle of individual Americans caught in the act of leadership, it was a story no other writer attempted to tell before.--Adapted from book jacket.
