An illuminating account of the history-making friendship between RFK and the chief of staff to JFK—a bond built on shared ideals, but severed by tragedy. When they first met at Harvard in 1946, young Bobby Kennedy and Kenny O’Donnell could not have imagined where their lives would take them. Teammates on both the football and debate teams, they formed a partnership that would sustain them through the years, from Robert Kennedy’s tenure as attorney general to O’Donnell’s years as John F. Kennedy’s chief of staff. Together they lived, worked, and struggled through some of the most pivotal moments of the twentieth century, including the assassination of JFK in Dallas. Their harmonious relationship was cut short only by Bobby’s own tragic death. With full access to the Kennedy family archives, Helen O’Donnell brings an inspiring personal and political alliance to life. With A Common Good, she amply fulfills the promise she made to her late father to honor and preserve his memories of Robert F. Kennedy for future generations. Kirkus Reviews hails A Common Good as “a moving and intimate study of a unique friendship but also of the time and place, now long ago, in which this friendship formed and blossomed.” O’Donnell “set out to write ‘a good book about two good men.’ In this she has succeeded.”

A behind-the-scenes look at JFK’s team: “Lively . . . fast-paced anecdotes [and] insights into pre-social media mid-20th-century politics” (Library Journal). The Irish Brotherhood is the history of Jack Kennedy’s original political inner circle. Led by Bobby Kennedy, Kenny O’Donnell, Larry O’Brien, and Dave Powers, it was a team dominated by tough minded Irish-Catholic guys and young war veterans who were joined by a common ambition to see Jack through to the White House. Written by the daughter of one of the core members of this team, this book provides one of the missing pieces of the story of John F. Kennedy’s improbable rise to power—covering such topics as Bobby’s determination to make his own mark apart from his famous family; the struggle to prove that Kenny and Larry’s outsider approach would work; the role of Joe Kennedy, Sr.; and the way that JFK embraced and enjoyed the rough-and-tumble of politics. It’s a unique inside view of the electoral process as well as an indelible portrait of John F. Kennedy as a son, a brother, and a friend as well as a public servant.

The tumultuous decade of the 1960s began with promise and hope when John F. Kennedy (JFK) became the youngest elected President in American history. Kennedy's "New Frontier" promised youthful and dynamic leadership, heading into the latter half of the century. A thousand days into the Kennedy presidency, an assassin's bullets shattered the dreams of an idealistic generation. After the Kennedy assassination, Vice-President Lyndon Johnson (LBJ) was catapulted into the Oval Office, much to the chagrin of JFK's younger brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. His idyllic life disrupted by fate, RFK viewed Johnson as a petty interloper, who had seized JFK's rightful place in history. Ever fearful that Robert Kennedy would attempt to regain the presidential throne, LBJ's paranoia ultimately compromised his judgment and contributed to his downfall. "Bad Blood: Lyndon B. Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and the Tumultuous 1960s" chronicles the personal and political feud between two powerful and controversial twentieth century icons.

Jesse Marvin Unruh acquired a national political reputation despite the fact that he never gained office above the California governmental level. He spent sixteen years (1955-1970) in the state legislature, seven of them as assembly speaker. While there he secured passage of moderate-liberal legislation and upgraded the quality of the state legislature to the number one position in the nation. Unruh curbed the power of special interest lobbies and induced them to support his legislative program. He also kept the state Democratic Party in a moderate political position as the Republicans moved ever further to the right. Although Governors Pat Brown and Ronald Reagan frustrated his desire to attain the Governorship, Unruh was elected State Treasurer in 1974. He transformed the office into one of great power to such an extent that by the time of his death in 1987 he was being referred to as 'the best governor California never had.' In the meantime, his close connections with the Kennedy family, especially John and Robert, his reputation as a political pundit, and his powerful influence on Wall Street, earned Unruh great respect far beyond his California base.
