Library Journal - Library JournalImmediately after 1963, Robert Kennedy organized an oral history project to preserve the accounts of his brother's associates. Now 20 years after his own death, interviews conducted with RFK himself are first being published. The public events of JFK's Administration are the bounds of these sessions focusing on civil rights and foreign affairs. Terse, frequently pungent, RFK's transcripted remarks are valuable for the immediacy they impart to events that quickly became history. Freedom Rides, the Bay of Pigs, and the Cuban missile crisis get due attention, but the interviewers, plainly sympathetic, sometimes sacrifice depth to touch all bases. Useful, even so, for academic and many public libraries. BOMC featured selection. Robert F. Nardini, M.L.S., Chichester, N.H.
