JFK and the Masculine Mystique
JFK and the Masculine Mystique: Sex and Power on the New Frontier.
By Steven Watts
'JFK and the Masculine Mystique' is not just another standard biography of the youthful president. By examining Kennedy in the context of certain books, movies, social critiques, music, and cultural discussions that framed his ascendancy, Watts shows us the excitement and sense of possibility, the optimism and aspirations, that accompanied the dawn of a new age in America.
