Format: Hardcover
The previous edition of this book, published by Magnum, was an absolute masterpiece. Fusco's work has a mesmerising sensitivity, and these particular photographs are amongst my favourites.

I was beyond excited to learn that Aperture were releasing a new, expanded version of the book, but was nearly sick when I saw how poor the print quality is. The Magnum edition was crisp and deft, beautifully done, but this is just stodge. Where previously you could ascertain where shirts ended and trousers began, now you can't.

How on earth could Paul Fusco have signed off on such a shoddy publication?

The photographs themselves get five stars, but this book does them no justice whatsoever.

Unforgettable memories 17 Nov. 2008
By Gerald Santucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was 14 when RFK was assassinated. Despite the fact I'm French and was living in Paris, I had followed all RFK's campaign since his announcement on March 16th, 1968. I had had grief after the Oregon primary, lost to Sen. Eugene McCarthy, yet high expectations for the California primary and of course the next stages. "Bobby" was the hope of a whole generation. There are no words to tell the unspeakable but he was a very respected man, one who could go everywhere in the U.S., including in Black ghettos and Indian reservations, thrilling audiences, moving people forward. Fusco's book successfully reports on the tragedy and trauma of RFK's assassination. Hundreds of thousands of people stood quietly, hand to heart, in the heat of that Spring to pay their respects to "a president who never was". It was one of those rare instances when a nation - and actually people from the whole world - comes together, when individuals from all horizons and backgrounds shared a respect for a leader whom, they believed, could have reconciled the whole country and put it back on track.

Remarkable 28 Sept. 2008
By Charles Junkerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a profoundly moving book. Each photo is a revelation. I've never looked at individual photographs so long or seen so much in my life. A real experience.

moving 25 Nov. 2008
By William G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
These images resonate. Sadness and hope were two emotions I felt while examining the photos. Very well done and effective in capture the time and emotion of the nation following the assassination.

incredibly moving & tear inducing words & photographs 21 May 2010
By R. A. Frauenglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
RFK, by Paul Fusco (224 pgs., 1968, 1969, 2000, 2008). This is an incredibly moving, tear-inducing, very large coffee table sized photography book. Along with those photographs it contains a very moving tribute to Bobby Kennedy by his then sole surviving brother, Sen. Teddy Kennedy. It also contains very evocative essays by Norman Mailer, Evan Thomas & Vicki Goldberg.
The year of 2008 was the fortieth anniversary of the assassination of Senator Bobby Kennedy by the despicable non-human animal whose name will not pass my lips nor be written or typed by my fingers. May his name be erased from history. Sadly, he will always remain a footnote in history. Killers become famous merely for killing. That is one sad statement.
Fusco was asked to go through his photo files again for this anniversary & he came up with many never before published photos; especially of the people along the route of the funeral train carrying Bobby's body from NYC to Arlington Cemetery. The family photos of some of the Kennedy clan kneeling in grief inside St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC, were gut wrenching. Seeing a young Caroline & an even younger John, Jr., next to their Mom with such sad faces, just a mere five years after the assassination of their own father, is heartbreaking. The close ups of bystanders along the train route, saying their last goodbyes to Bobby are equally heart rending. Again, these photos illustrate how Bobby was the last major political figure to unite so many disparate elements in American society. His support cut across all racial & ethnic lines, all economic strata, all religious groups & even political divides which now seem set in stone. We are so much the worse because of his loss.

Amazing Photography! 2 Jun. 2009
By S. Maloney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Of course, this is one of those cases where the subject of the book comes with all sorts preconceived notions, but the photography in this book will make you feel the loss and respect these people felt as if you were actually there. Excellent documentary photography.
