“JFK, Conservative” By Ira Stoll

John F. Kennedy is lionized by liberals. But what if we judge him by the lengthy record of his actual political career, in historical perspective? What if this hero of liberals was, in fact, the opposite of a liberal?

In JFK, Conservative, Ira Stoll convincingly argues, by the standards of both his time and our own, John F. Kennedy was a conservative. 

Ira Stoll is editor of FutureOfCapitalism.com and author of Samuel Adams: A Life. He was vice president and managing editor of the New York Sun, which he helped to found, from its debut in 2002 until its demise in 2008. Before that he was a consultant to the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal, North American editor of the Jerusalem Post, editor of Smartertimes.com, Washington correspondent and then managing editor of the Forward, and a reporter for the Los Angeles Times.

"Young Mr. Roosevelt" By Stanley Weintraub

    In Young Mr. Roosevelt, acclaimed historian Stanley Weintraub evokes Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s political and wartime beginnings. An unpromising patrician playboy appointed assistant secretary of the Navy in 1913, Roosevelt learned quickly and rose to national visibility in World War I.

Democratic vice-presidential nominee in 1920, he lost the election but not his ambitions. While his stature was rising, his testy marriage to his cousin Eleanor was fraying amid scandal quietly covered up. Even polio a year later would not suppress his inevitable ascent.

Stanley Weintraub will talk about his new book at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum on Sunday, November 3 at 2pm.
