Riassunto: These essays by Robert F. Kennedy, which grew out of speeches, travel and his experience as Attorney General and a United States Senator, pose a simple question for America and consequently for the free world, in the 60s and 70s: Are you willing to dare? Today's challenges are awesome in scope and baffling in complexity. A military coup in Brazil may effect the entire hemisphere and endanger the Alliance for Progress. Riots and decay in the American cities pose the dangers of war in the streets, and a permanent alienation of black and white America. Vietnam raises the possibility of recurrent draining conflict, with a huge and unknown China beyond. And overall loom the new weapons of war, threatening at every moment to destroy all they were designed to defend. But for all the problems, says the author, our fortunes need not and cannot be surrendered to an inscrutable fate. The question posed is not to America's resources, not to their ability, but to their commitment and character. This is the question Robert Kennedy repeatedly addresses in To Seek a Newer World. As a major architect of positions and policies at home and abroad since 1961, he is candid in assessing his countries shortcomings and mistakes. Yet his call for a new ordering of national priorities is a hopeful one – to match American heritage and power with a new effort and will – to seek a newer world for the United States and for the community of man.
About the Author: Robert F. Kennedy was born on November 20, 1925. He is often regard as a weak second brother to John F. Kennedy but in reality he was far better educated. He graduated from law school and passed the bar exam. John F. Kennedy did neither. He also wrote five books. Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated on June 6, 1968. Nobody knows why he was assassinated as the man who did it, Sirhan Sirhan, says he does not know why he did it either. It is fairly certain that had not Robert Kennedy been assassinated just minutes after winning the California primary, he would have been elected president of the United States and all of history from then until now would have been different. Would he have gotten us out of Vietnam, something Lyndon Johnson seemed unable to do? He served as the United States junior senator from New York from January 1965 until his assassination in June 1968. He was previously the 64th US Attorney General from January 1961 to September 1964, serving under his older brother President John F. Kennedy and his successor, President Lyndon B. Johnson. Now the largest bridge within New York City, the Tri-Borough Bridge, which is a combination of three bridges that connect Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx, had been renamed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, or simply the RFK Bridge. A question is why was this book published posthumously in 1968. Why not publish it when Robert F. Kennedy was still alive and why publish it in England rather than in America? One suspects that the answer might be in classified material. Much information about the Cuban Missile Crisis and about the Bay of Pigs Invasion remain classified to this day.
