This chapter dwells at length on the political backgrounds of John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon and the tumultuous developments culminating in the 1960 presidential election. The historical literature on John F. Kennedy's life is now sufficiently extensive and reliable to provide a more unobstructed view of him, his motivations, and his strengths and weaknesses. The repercussions of political turmoil on the personal lives of these two leaders have been narrated at length. Along with a biographical sketch of both Kennedy and Nixon, the relationship between both of them has been extensively analyzed.
