Sweeping biographies abound-authorised and non-authorised regarding Ted Kennedy. These biographies generally either applaud him for his ideals or harshly criticise him for partisan reasons or moral reasons due to his personal flaws. The Legislative Legacy of Edward M. Kennedy: Eleven Milestones in Pursuit of Social Justice, 1965-2007 differs from all published books about Kennedy to date. Using historical tools and legal analysis the book closely examines ten major pieces of Legislation Kennedy sponsored or strongly backed as well as attempted immigration reform he spearheaded with John McCain. The balanced, impeccably researched book is a must for students, scholars and the general public. By tracing the Legislation from their introduction through passage, and analysing the actual language of the Legislation, the book sheds considerable light both on the unintended consequences through time of the Legislation as well as consequences Kennedy intended in attempting to promote reform and combat discrimination.
