 The celebrated historian tells the full story of Joseph P. Kennedy, the founder of the twentieth century's most famous political dynasty. The only biographer granted unrestricted access to the Joseph P. Kennedy papers in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library tracks Joseph Kennedy's astonishing passage from East Boston outsider to supreme Washington insider.  The author explores not only one of the twentieth century's wealthiest and most powerful Americans, but also the family he raised and the children who completed the journey he had began.
