Richard Aldous (Bard College) drew on oral histories, rarely seen archival documents, and the official Schlesinger papers to create a new biography and an invaluable portrait of a brilliant and controversial historian who framed America’s rise to global empire. Arthur Schlesinger Jr., known today as the architect of John F. Kennedy’s presidential legacy, redefined the art of presidential biography. A Thousand Days, his best-selling record of the Kennedy administration remains immensely influential and cemented his place as one of the nation’s greatest political image makers.
