The Making of a Catholic President

Author: Shaun Casey

January 23, 2009

In The Making of a Catholic President, Shaun Casey tells the fascinating story of how the Kennedy campaign transformed the "religion question" from a liability into an asset, making him the first (and still only) Catholic president.
