The Making of the President 1960 is the book that revolutionized-even created-modern political journalism. Granted intimate access to all parties involved, Theodore White crafted an almost mythic story of the battle that pitted Senator John E Kennedy against Vice-President Richard M. Nixon-from the decisive primary battles to the history-making televised debates, the first of their kind. Magnificently detailed and exquisitely paced, The Making of the President 1960 imbues the nation's presidential election process with both grittiness and grandeur, and established a benchmark against which all new campaign reporters would measure their work. The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for general nonaction-and the first entry in White's influential four-volume "narrative history of American politics in action"-this classic account remains the keystone of American political journalism. Book jacket.
