"Camelot's Court: Inside the Kennedy White House"

Robert Dallek's "Camelot's Court: Inside the Kennedy White House" (Harper: 492 pp., $32.50) addresses what happened once Kennedy assumed the Oval Office, through the filter of the "Ministry of Talent" (his brother Bobby, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, Ted Sorensen, Arthur Schlesinger) with whom he surrounded himself. It's a story that's been told before —by Dallek, even, in his 2003 biography "An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963" — but here it takes on a fascinating focus, framed by the 1,000 days of JFK's presidency.
