Matthews, political commentator and host of MSNBC’s Hardball, uncovered new facets of JFK in his acclaimed Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero. Now he looks closely at the brilliant younger brother Jack often overshadowed. Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Matthews charts Bobby Kennedy’s evolution from a neglected son and perpetual underdog to a strong and independent political figure. Defining Kennedy as that rare combination of pragmatist and idealist, Matthews traces his subject’s political philosophy back to Bobby’s decision to enter the Navy as a common sailor rather than an officer. This put him in contact with a wide variety of people, many of whom supported his presidential ambitions in 1968.
