Meticulous investigation of Kennedy has revealed a wealth of indiscretions and malfeasance, ranging from frequent liaisons with prostitutes and mistresses to the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro to involvement in organized crime. Though scandals in the White House are nothing new, Hersh maintains that Kennedy's activities went beyond minor abuses of power and personal indulgences: they threatened the security of the nation--particularly in the realm of foreign policy--and the integrity of the office.

Does for the Kennedy clan what Kitty Kelley did for the Bushes (and it sounds like there may be some similarities in their obsessions with covering up inconvenient facts). Takes on the whole family, not just one member.

This books offer an enlightened perspective to the Kennedy political influence with the U.S. The author is very thorough with his investigation.
