Perfect Villains, Imperfect Heroes [Robert F.Kennedy's war against organized crime]
Goldfarb Ronald
1995

When the newly elected president John F.Kennedy appointed his younger brother attorney general, there was a firestorm of criticism. Not only was the nepotism blatant, but Robert Kennedy had never tried a case in court. In addition, he was considered ruthless, highly politicized, and intemperate.

President of the Other America
[Robert F.Kennedy & the Politics of Poverty]
Schmitt Edward R.
2010

Robert Kennedy's abbreviated run for the presidency in 1968 has assumed almost mythical proportions in American memory. His campaign has been romanticized because of its tragic end, but also because of the foreign and domestic crises that surrounded it. Yet while most media coverage initially focused on Kennedy's opposition to the Vietnam War as the catalyst of his candidacy, another issue commanded just as much of his attention. That issue was poverty. Stumping across the country, he repeated the same anti-poverty themes before college students in Kansas and Indiana, loggers and women factory workers in Oregon, farmers in Nebraska, and business groups in New York. Although his calls to action sometimes met with apathy, he refused to modify his message. "if they don't care" he told one aide "the hell with them".
