Young, vital, and dynamic, John F. Kennedy defined a new age in American politics when he rose to the presidency in 1960 only to be cut down by an assassin within his first term. JFK Biographer Robert Dallek is interviewed for C-SPAN in this streaming video program that tracks Kennedy's life, from his pampered upbringing in a prominent family, to his eventful naval career, to a political life that eventually led to a brief but challenging presidency, where the height of space age optimism was undercut by the looming threat of global nuclear annihilation. Dallek is quick to point out Kennedy's faults, while at the same time offering measured approval of the trials he faced in a presidency that's proven popular in part due to its tragic, untimely end. This program is available on streaming video through the C-SPAN video library website.
