Overview

The Kennedys are the most photographed, written about, admired, hated and controversial family in American history. But for all the words and pictures, the real story was not told until Peter Collier and David Horowitz spent years researching archives and interviewing family members and people close to the Kennedys. An immediate classic, The Kennedys: An American Drama brings the story of four generations of "America's family" fully into view.

Collier and Horowitz capture the fiery ambition, the mythic identity, the dynastic ebb and flow, and the corrosive underside of Camelot that led one young Kennedy to say, "We broke the rules and in turn we were broken by them." The Kennedys is a fascinating and brilliantly comprehensive history that brings together, for the first and only time, all the complex strains of the story of the Kennedys' rise and fall. The authors have updated the story with new material showing the effect of the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. and the other family tragedies of the last few years on the Kennedys and their mythic role in American life.

Here is a riveting epic of family tensions and neuroses, of money, power and influence, of triumph and tragedy.
