"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

JFK In Ireland -- NBC News on President John F. Kennedy's 1963 Trip. Much More in "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings".



Last year, NBC News did an excellent job of compiling some of the old footage from JFK's 1963 trip to Ireland, a few months before his assassination. The "emerald thread" that JFK so often talked about, the ties between the Irish who fled the famine and those who found a new home as immigrants to America, was affirmed with this visit. My book explores all of the cultural forces of the Kennedys' Irish Catholic immigrant background and how it affected their public and privates lives.
