Letters to Kennedy.


Item Number: 2992

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1988.

First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Warmly inscribed by the author in the year of publication, “For Barry Zorthian well loved friend and the best journalist I ever knew. John Kenneth Galbraith.” The recipient was a U.S. government spokesman and American diplomat during the Vietnam War.

"A most unusual combination: significant historical documentation on India, on Vietnam, and on the conduct of foreign and economic policy, joined with inside political gossip, all in the context of a fascinating friendship between two notable figures, all told in witty and engaging letters. I don't suppose there has been anything quite like the Galbraith- Kennedy relationship since Voltaire and Frederick the Great." (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.)
