The Liberals' Moment (2007)
by David Pietrusza, B.A. '71, M.A. '72

In 1960: LBJ vs. JFK vs. Nixon, award-winning author and Amsterdam, N.Y., native David Pietrusza, B.A. '71, M.A. '72, chronicles the pivotal election of 1960, in which issues of civil rights and religion converged. His well-researched and compelling text reveals new secrets in an objective way.

"This is no insider account," writes Jay Freeman in Booklist, "Pietrusza is not beholden to any of the three candidates, and they are not portrayed sympathetically."
