Before John F. Kennedy became a legendary young President, he was the junior Senator from Massachusetts. The Senate was where JFK’s presidential ambitions were born and first realized. In this forthcoming book, John T. Shaw looks at how the young Senator was able to catapult himself on the national stage. JFK in the Senate aims to provide an accessible introduction to Kennedy’s personality and his efforts to transform himself into a viable presidential candidate, and it will certainly appeal to those interested in US political history, writes Ana Polo Alonso.
