Product Overview

Timed to re-release simultaneously with Chris Matthews''s new book Jack Kennedy, which Simon & Schuster will publish this fall, this national bestseller explores the fascinating, largely unknown, relationship between Nixon and Kennedy and the crucial ways in which it shaped them--and the nation.

Hardball is a tough, funny, tell-all revelation of how politics really works. From tales of raw ambition and brutal rivalry to behind-the-scenes stories of famous disagreements, Matthews reveals the truth about master politicians such as JFK, LBJ, and Richard Nixon, while he explains the real meaning of rules such as "Only talk when it improves the silence;" "Positioning is everything;" and "Always concede on principle."

Whether addicted to Washington politics or office politics, readers will enjoy this unprecedented guide to grown-ups'' favorite game--the game of position, power, and survival in the world today.

Editors Note John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon each dreamed of becoming the great young leader of their age. First as friends, then as bitter enemies, they were linked by a historic rivalry that changed both them and their country. In this startling dual portrait, Chris Matthews shows how the contest between the charismatic Kennedy and the talented yet haunted Nixon propelled America toward Vietnam and Watergate. Fresh, entertaining, and revealing, Kennedy and Nixon shows how the early fondness between the two men—Kennedy, for example, told a trusted friend that if he didn’t receive the Democratic nomination in 1960, he would vote for Nixon—degenerated into distrust and bitterness. Using White House tapes, this book shows how Richard Nixon’s dread of a Kennedy “restoration” in 1972 drove the dark deeds of Watergate.
