THE LAST CAMPAIGN Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Pete Larkin

Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Clarke examines the enormous effect on Americans of RFK's eighty-two-day campaign for the presidency. RFK became a candidate because he hoped to help heal a morally wounded nation. It was 1968. An unpopular president (Johnson) was waging a controversial war (Vietnam). By deciding to run, RFK infuriated Johnson and angered everyone from white Southerners to the business community, from organized crime to machine pols like Chicago's Mayor Daly. The year also saw the Tet Offensive, the My Lai massacre, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, assassination, and the worst racial disturbances since the Civil War. Pete Larkin narrates in the best storytelling tradition, avoiding any trace of theatricality or "broadcast voice." He makes Clarke's well-researched page out of recent American history hard to put down. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
