Product Code: 9034677

A narrative of Kennedy's quest to create a speech that would distill
           American dreams and empower a new generation, Ask Not is a
           beautifully detailed account of the inauguration and the weeks
           preceding it. During a time when America was divided, and its
           citizens torn by fears of war, John F. Kennedy took office and
           sought to do more than just reassure the American people. His speech
           marked the start of a brief, optimistic era. Thurston Clarke's
           portrait of JFK is balanced, revealing the president at his most
           dazzlingly charismatic and cunningly pragmatic.
