From the Publisher:
A resissue of the gripping and bestselling account of the perilous showdown between the United States and Soviet Union in 1962. Includes a new Foreword by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
This volume presents Senator Robert F. Kennedy's perspective on the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962, 13 days during which the world seemed on the brink of nuclear war. Kennedy was U.S. Attorney General at the time, which gave him a firsthand perspective on his brother's negotiations with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
Author Bio
Arthur Meier Schlesinger Jr.
The son of esteemed historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Schlesinger, Jr. went to Harvard University, where he got his B. A. in 1938. An early work, THE AGE OF JACKSON, won the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1946. As a result, he was offered a position at Harvard. He spent over 30 years on his three-volume study, THE AGE OF ROOSEVELT. A democrat and a liberal, Schlesinger was a founder of the Americans for Democratic Action and was a supporter of Adlai Stevenson. Schlesinger was a close family confidante of the Kennedys, and served as advisor to JFK. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his biography of Kennedy's term in office, A THOUSAND DAYS. In the '70s, he wrote a very laudatory biography, ROBERT KENNEDY & HIS TIMES. Schlesinger has been a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was elected to the prestigious American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He has been on the faculty of The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
