JFK speaking, His political speeches 1959-1960, vol. V (562 pp.)
JFK, one of America’s youngest presidents, was not originally meant to become a politician. It was only his older brother’s death, in 1944, while flying a bomber over Europe, that opened up the way for him to follow on his father’s and maternal grandfather’s footsteps in Massachusetts and, eventually, national US politics. This long process of his political evolution has rarely been followed thoroughly. Now, thanks to this five volume series, readers have the opportunity to examine more closely the young JFK’s political career that carried him from Massachusetts local politics to the White House in a space of barely 18 years! The fifth volume of the series includes 98 speeches, delivered during 1958 and 1960 throughout the US and concluding with the newly elected president’s speech of November 9, 1960, by which he thanked the outgoing president, Dwight Eisenhower, his Republican opponent, Richard Nixon, and the American people for their congratulations, asking for their support in the difficult political issues that required his attention.
