Example text

His mother, while repeatedly expressing concern about her son to the headmaster, never wrote or visited him. In fact, I have never uncovered any personal communication with Jack in the letters she sent to her other children or to all of them collectively. In fairness to her, she not only read often to him at home but also had to deal with a disabled daughter and seven other children, while subscribing to the conventional wisdom that discipline overrode affection in child rearing. All of this confirmed one source of Kennedy’s conflicting feelings toward his mother – and women in general – that was expressed in my earlier work and in that of Hamilton, Perret, and Dallek, which also focused on her sanctimoniousness and her toleration of her husband’s sexual behavior.
