Congratulations to our client historian and journalist Burton Hersh whose new book EDWARD KENNEDY: An Intimate Biography has just been published. In this groundbreaking biography, Hersh combines extensive critical research with more than fifty years of never-before-told anecdotes and observations from his lifelong acquaintance with Edward Kennedy to create an indelible portrait of one of the finest legislators and most influential senators in American history.

The author provides the first full report of the vendetta that developed between Kennedy and Richard Nixon, describing the behind-the-scenes manipulations that Kennedy employed to eventually drive Nixon from office during the Watergate scandal.

Burton Hersh has long been regarded as Edward Kennedy’s principal biographer and is the author of such widely respected nonfiction as Bobby and J. Edgar, The Shadow President, The Old Boys: The American Elite and the Origins of the CIA, and The Mellon Family. A veteran journalist, he has contributed to such publications as Esquire, The Washingtonian, and The New York Times.
