"What I like most in Maier's giant work is the spine of this saga, the all-important record of influence the great soldier-statesman-historian's life exerted on the future American president." -- Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball, review in Chartwell Bulletin, The Churchill Centre

Ted Kennedy's 2007 speech marking 50th Anniversary of JFK's "A Nation of Immigrants"

Somehow, the historians of the Kennedy era have missed the significance of JFK's "A Nation of Immigrants", both to the nation and to the Kennedy themselves. In this 2007 speech, announcing the 50th anniversary re-publication of this book, Sen. Edward Kennedy underlined its lasting impact. In my biography, "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings", the origin of JFK's book is discussed at length. My book is being re-issued by Basic Books this summer, along with a Warner Home Entertainment documentary called by the same name -- "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings."
