Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As the book's title indicates, the duel for the presidency between Kennedy and Nixon lies at the center of the narrative, which is appropriate since both men, as well as the legacies they left, continued to play key factors in our politics throughout the decade. But Thomas also casts a wider net. Using a month-by-month approach, he covers a variety of emerging forces, including civil rights, decolonization in the Third World, and environmentalism. This is a fine retrospective that indicates how we got here from there." - Booklist

"Thomas's book is a welcome addition to this body of literature, because his framework is broader and more wide-ranging.. . .Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries."
