From November 13, 2013: Fifty years after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, distinguished presidential historian and bestselling author Robert Dallek provides a striking portrait of the iconic president and his inner circle of advisers—their rivalries, personality clashes, and political battles.

In Camelot’s Court: Inside the Kennedy White House, Dallek analyzes the brain trust whose contributions to the successes and failures of Kennedy’s administration—including the Bay of Pigs, civil rights, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam—made an indelible impact on American history.

National Constitution Center president Jeffrey Rosen spoke with Dallek in a riveting one-hour discussion about a leader whose resistance to pressure and adherence to principle offers a fascinating perspective on presidential power.
