Overview:

85 Days: The Last Campaign of Robert Kennedy : 85 Days is veteran Washington journalist Jules Witcover's masterpiece of political reportage. It brilliantly captures a lost moment in time when the politics of conviction seemed to converge with America's youth movement in opposition to the Vietnam War. At its center was the charismatic Robert F. Kennedy, brother of the slain President John F. Kennedy. Robert Kennedy's impassioned opposition to the Vietnam War, and his vision for a more egalitarian United States, launched him on one of the most memorable, though brief, campaigns in U.S. political history.

Witcover's driving narrative follows Kennedy's campaign throughout the primary season, as Kennedy mulled a run, developed his core issues and supporter base, and shot to the top of the polls, culminating in a victory in California just two days before he was tragically killed. A timeless work of political journalism, 85 Days captures the character and spirit of a man who came to symbolize an unforgettable era in America.
