"The Making of the President, 1960", was a huge success when the book came out in 1961. It stayed on the best-seller list for more than forty weeks. Theodore H.White’s book, written just like a novel, traced the 1960 campaign from the primaries to the end. It first followed John.F.Kennedy facing Senator Hubert Humphrey and Senator Wayne Morse in the Democratic primary election. White later continued his notes on the Kennedy-Nixon opposition until Kennedy’s victory.

The book had quite an impact on politics and its image. Critics and journalists who had read it were subjected to a shift in their way to describe everyday politic. As said by White in the book itself, it showed a leader under the pressures of circumstances. [H.White, H. (1961) The Making of the President, 1960. Atheneum Publishers. ISBN 0689706006, 9780689706004.] It reported a presidential battle in a different angle. This literary-journalistic book brought a dramactic point of view on the world of politics and its strategies, victories and defeats. White even noted all intonations and postures of the1960 politicians. A chapter was also devoted on detailing the reasons behind Americans way to vote and their way to live. [Barber, J.D. (1992).
