An account of JFK's final months examines his roles in advancing civil rights and the Limited Test Ban Treaty, recounts the death of his premature infant son and considers what might have occurred had he not been assassinated.
President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, are greeted by an enthusiastic crowd upon their arrival at Dallas Love Field on Nov. 22, 1963.
November 18, 2013 Publishers have flooded the market with books — both new and reprinted — about JFK this fall. Some hazard conspiracy theories or point out the failings of the Warren Commission. Others avoid the subject of the assassination, focusing on JFK's character and legacy. And one includes all 486 frames of the famous Zapruder film, published in their entirety for the first time.
