Books Info:

The Kennedys free pdf For 150 years, the story of the Kennedy family has been inextricably linked to their heritage as Irish-Catholic immigrantsfrom Patrick Kennedys 1848 arrival in Brahmin Boston from Country Wexford Ireland, to Joseph Kennedys Vatican ties and Jackies thoughts on faith and sorrow, to Kennedy-confidante Father McSorleys religious counsel following the assassination of JFK. Through groundbreaking interviews with Senator Edward Kennedy and other Kennedy family and friends, acclaimed journalist Thomas Maier casts the Kennedy saga in an entirely new light, showing how their Irish catholic heritage influenced their public and private decisions. Released to coincide with a documentary adapted from the book, this edition features a new preface, in which Maier explores the dynamics of the three brothers, Ted Kennedys legacy, and the 2008 presidential elections that have been touched in so many ways by the Kennedy family.
