How Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, have invoked the Kennedy mythology, adopted the Kennedy strategy, even tried to summon up the Kennedy appearance in order to influence Congress, the media, and the American public-and in the process demeaned the substance of American politics. "Meticulously offers important insights on the power of myth in presidential politics."-Presidential Studies Quarterly.

Paul R. Henggeler taught American history at the University of Texas, Pan American. His first book, In His Steps: Lyndon Johnson and the Kennedy Mystique, won high praise from historians and critics.
This well-rendered treatise draws history onto important ground tracking the influence of a single, powerful symbol in an age when political power came to reside increasingly in media spectacle. * Kirkus * Astute...meticulously researched...offers important insights on the power of myth in presidential politics. -- Amos Kiewe * Presidential Studies Quarterly *
