Now back in print, freshly repackaged, and with a new foreword written by Robert Dallek, The Making of the President 1960 remains the most influential publication about the election of John F. Kennedy.

Reviews

"A notable achievement. White has written a fascinating story of a fascinating campaign." -- Time magazine "No book that I know of has caught the heartbeat of a campaign as strikingly as Theodore White has done in The Making of the President 1960." -- New York Times "A masterpiece . . . full of deep insights into political power in America and how our democracy works in choosing the President. It gripped me from beginning to end as very few books have." -- William L. Shirer "More than a fascinating account of how one man succeeded in reaching the White House, while other failed; it is a graduate lesson in the rough, relentless, subtle and devious workings of American politics. It is a magnificent job of reporting, but it is also history." -- Saturday Review "[White] revolutionized the art of political reporting." -- William F. Buckley
