The Pulitzer Prize-winning account of men of principle integrity and bravery in American politics was here available in President John F Kennedys Profiles In Courage Eight men who served the United States Government were selected by John F Kennedy as models of virtue and courage under pressure These eight men persevered in their pursuit of justice and the right path in spite of the coercion and vilification of the majority These heroes include Mississippis Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar who stood up to unbounded slander when he moved to reconcile Northern and Southern differences during the years after the Civil War and George Norris who in 1910 crusaded against the strong and often dictatorial leadership of his own party Others profiled by Kennedy included John Quincy Adams Daniel Webster Thomas Hart Benton Sam Houston Edmund G Ross and Robert A Taft John Kennedys spirited words and devotion to courage lived on in this novel A thoughtful and persuasive book about political integrity Nominated for a Grammy Award in 1991 a recording of Profiles In Courage featured John F Kennedy Jr reading his fathers portrait of courageous Americans John F Kennedy inspired one generation and now others to believe that politics can be a noble profession For President Kennedy history was not a dull dry subject but came alive in the stories of people who risked their careers to stand up for what was right for our country even when it was not the easy thing to do This distinguished belief is played out in his novel in several ways For example President John Quincy Adams faced political aversion from his own Federalist Party which was turning to desert him Also Henry Clay showed courage when he dragged himself into Senate meetings through excruciating pain and anguish due to his failing health John F Kennedy stated One man can make a difference and every man should try Of course this applies to everyone including women
