After JFK's assassination, Robert Kennedy--Jack's political warrior--almost lost hope. He was haunted by his brother's murder, and by the nation's inabilities to solve its problems of race, poverty, and the war in Vietnam. Bobby sensed the country's pain, and when he announced that he was running for president, the country united behind his hopes. Over the action-packed days of his campaign, Americans were inspired by Kennedy's promise of a better time. And after an assassin's bullet stopped this last great stirring public figure of the 1960s, crowds lined up along the country's railroad tracks to say goodbye to Bobby. Historian Clarke provides an absorbing historical narrative that goes right to the heart of America's deepest despairs--and most fiercely held dreams--and tells us more than we had understood before about this complicated man and the heightened personal, racial, political, and national dramas of his times.… (mere)

The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America by Thurston Clarke is an excellent book. It is an inspiring book, a heart warming and tragic book, and a book that filled my heart with hope and sorrow. I wish we had a Bobby Kennedy right now that could reach out and pull people together like he could. Someone that could call for peace and coming together rather than shattering the populace. Someone that is honest and caring, that wants the poor and middle class to have more, do better, to achieve higher, and for us all to care for each other. Dreams, he had them. We don't have dreams now...we have a nightmare come true. ( )

Very good, very sad. Eerie at times the way RFK seemed hurling toward his death almost knowingly. Makes you wonder what might have been. Also makes you wonder how such a figure (and his policies) would fare today. Similarities for sure b/w RFK and BHO in terms of campaigning style and impact but I wonder about governing. ( )

5176. The Last Campaign Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America, by Thurston Clarke (read 30 Jun 2014) This 2008 book tells of Bobby Kennedy's 82 days between the time he announced his candidacy on March 18, 1968, and the time he was assassinated in June 1968. There was little in the book I did not recall, since I was active in that campaign. The author assumes Bobby would have won the nomination and he may be right, but at the time, even after he won the primary in California, I knew there were still formidable hurdles before he could be nominated. It was an exciting and eventually very sad time and this book enabled me to relive that time. The book is not excessively pro-Bobby but does show much of the fervor which enlivened those tense and historic days. ( )

A really in-depth look at the 82 days of RFK's1968 Presidential campaign. Full of heartening and beart-breaking anecdotes. All the more heartbreaking because you know how it will all end... ( )

Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say prayer for our country and for our people.
