Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Veteran journalist Sander Vanocur provides introductions to, and briefly comments on, these word-for-word reproductions of the famous debates broadcast on national radio and television in 1960. Those interested in post-World War II U.S. history or in the history of the presidency will find this gripping listening. Those who witnessed the presidential or vice presidential debates of the 1990s will find a different kind of fascination as they listen to the reasoned, informed, yet unrehearsed commentary of the principal performers, Richard M. Nixon and John F. Kennedy. What has happened to recent politicians? None would appear to have the passionate love of this country, what it could stand for, or the understanding of the U.S. role in the world as these two. This audio is a trip to the political world of 1960: a welcome return for some listeners; a welcome first visit for others. Very highly recommended for the general listener. Required purchase for fans of history and politics.-Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., Ohio
