For decades, books about jobs or Robert townly have woven either a shimmering Sc of Camelot gallantry or a tawdry story of runaway ambinis reckless personal behaviour. But the veal say eft Kennedys in the 1960s has long been saran& � until now.

In Brothers: The Hidden Flinn tit Kennedy Years, David Talbot sheds dramatic new light on the tumultuous inner life of the Kennedy presidency and its stunning aftermath.

Brothers begins on the shattering afternoon of November 22, 1963, as a grief-stricken Robert Kennedy urgently demands answers about the assassination of his brother. Bobby's suspicions immediately focus on the nest of CIA spies, gangsters and Cuban exiles that had long been plotting a violent regime-change in Cuba. The Kennedys had struggled to control this swamp of anti-Castro intrigue based in southern Florida, but with little success. Brothers then shifts back in time, revealing the shadowy conflicts that tore apart the Kennedy administration, pitting the young president and his even younger brother against their own national security apparatus.

The Kennedy brothers and a small circle of their most trusted advisors repeatedly thwarted Washington's warrior caste. These hard-line generals and spymasters were hell-bent on a showdown with the Communist foe � in Berlin, Laos,Vietnam, and especially Cuba. But the Kennedys continually frustrated their hawkish ambitions, pushing instead for a peaceful resolution to the Cold War. The tensions within the Kennedy administration grew to an explosive climax, until a burst of gunfire in a sunny Dallas plaza terminated John F. Kennedy's presidency.

Based on interviews with more than 150 people �including many of the Kennedys' ageing 'band of brothers' whose testimony here might be their final word on this epic political story � as well as newly released government documents, Brothers tells the compelling, untold story of the Kennedy years, including JFK's heroic efforts to keep the country out of cataclysmic war and Bobby Kennedy's secret quest to solve his beloved brother's murder.
