“The best and most interesting book written on the Kennedy Presidency in decades . . . One of the most moving books I have ever read on patriotism and citizenship” (David Eisenhower, bestselling author of Eisenhower at War, 1943–1945).
 
More than a half century after President Kennedy’s death, we find ourselves 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 citizenship, and that a rededication to the values he 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, a must-read for Americans of all generations, 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.
