Profiles in Courage Overview

Profiles in Courage is John F. Kennedy’s nonfictional attempt to illustrate that, despite public opinions otherwise, senators possess courage in the face of overwhelming opposition. Kennedy describes courage as the most admirable of human virtues, and goes on to state that defending one’s beliefs in the face of such adversity is indeed courageous. He then goes on to recount the stories of eight senators who stood up for their principles despite the consequences.
