Summary
In a book based on newly released documents, the author sheds a new light on the historic battle between U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy and Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa during the Senate Rackets Committee hearings and beyond during 1957 to 1964
Summary
"One of America's greatest investigative reporters, James Neff brings to life the gripping, no-holds-barred clash of two American titans: Robert Kennedy and his nemesis Jimmy Hoffa. From 1957 to 1964, Robert Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa channeled nearly all of their considerable powers into destroying each other. Kennedy's pursuit of his nemesis Hoffa burst into the public consciousness with the 1957 Senate Rackets Committee hearings and intensified when his brother named him attorney general in 1961. RFK puttogether a 'Get Hoffa' squad within the Justice Department, devoted to destroying one man. But Hoffa, with nearly unlimited Teamster funds, was not about to roll over. Drawing upon a treasure trove of previously secret and undisclosed documents, James Neff has crafted a brilliant, heart-pounding epic of crime and punishment, a saga of venom and relentlessness and two men willing to do anything to demolish each other"--From publisher's website
