“Scott Reich’s book delivers a message of service and citizenship that is as essential today as it was when President Kennedy first asked what we could do for our country. At a time when it can be easy to focus on the differences that divide us, Scott makes a powerful and compelling case for the values that unite us.”
Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-MA)
“Scott Reich’s The Power of Citizenship is the best and most interesting book written on the Kennedy Presidency in decades. But above all,is one of the most moving books I have ever read on patriotism and citizenship, and the power of leadership to inspire both. This book will be read as a primer and a classic on the subjects it covers for many years to come.”
David Eisenhower, bestselling author of Eisenhower at War, 1943-1945
Fifty years after John F. Kennedy’s death, we find ourselves enmeshed in an era of political division and cynicism, where politicians talk past one another and the spirit of “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country” is less visible than it should be. We seem to have forgotten that we’re all on the same team. Fortunately, Scott D. Reich has given us The Power of Citizenship, a timely book to bring us back on track.
Reich asserts that the most powerful element of Kennedy’s legacy is his emphasis on the theme of citizenship, and that a rededication to the values Kennedy promoted will shine a bright path forward for our country. Evoking the hopes and aspirations of the 1960s, Reich recaptures the excitement of the Kennedy era. But what truly sets this book apart is the unique way it blends the romance of Camelot with the new frontiers of today—not only identifying modern challenges, but also offering a tangible blueprint for how we can improve our public discourse, be good citizens, and lift our nation to new heights of greatness.
Part history and part call to action, The Power of Citizenship hones in on the very essence of what made JFK so inspirational and timeless, reminding us once again that we must ask what we can do for our country. This is a must-read for Americans of all generations.
