I’m pleased to “host” this discussion of Thurston Clarke’s excellent and moving book. I was of course involved in Robert Kennedy’s 1968 campaign and so I have some first-hand knowledge of the subject. Mr. Clarke has done meticulous research and has, I think, captured the feeling of the time, the dynamic of the campaign, and, most important, the complexity of the man. So if I may, I would begin by recommending, strongly and enthusiastically, that anyone reading this who hasn’t read the book do so.
