Published just months before his assassination, To Seek A Newer World provides the best glimpse of what might have been, had Kennedy assumed the presidency. "The sixties were a turbulent decade, and Robert Kennedy responded to that turbulence with unusual directness and sensitivity. He had evolved from the rigid prosecutor of a decade earlier into a popular leader who combined political realism with social idealism and passion with humor" (Foner & Garraty, 614).
