Summary

Summary

A #1 New York Times bestseller

Winner of the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction

A Harper Perennial Political Classic, The Making of the President 1960 is the groundbreaking national bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the 1960 presidential campaign and the election of John F. Kennedy.

The Making of the President: 1960 revolutionized the way modern presidential campaigns are reported. Reporting from within the campaign for the first time on record, White’s extensive research and access to all parties involved set the bar for campaign coverage and remains unparalleled. White conveyed, in magnificent detail and with exquisite pacing, the high-stakes drama; he painted the unforgettable, even mythic, story of JFK versus Nixon; and most of all, he imbued the nation’s presidential election process with a grandeur that later political writers have rarely matched.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A notable achievement. White has written a fascinating story of a fascinating campaign.” Time
“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
“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
