A speech that deserves the fullest attention today!,
This review is from: To Move The World: JFK's Quest for Peace (Paperback)
With great interest and enthusiam I read this book by Jeffrey Sachs. He rightfully has pinpointed the Peace Speech of JFK, 5 months before his assassination by internal forces, as one of the most important yet least known speeches by JFK. The roadmap JFK outlined for a peaceful coexistence of people of all nations (not just between the US and then USSR) is still current today.
If you want to understand why this speech formed one of the moments which cost this president dearly, you should read this book in conjunction with the book by Douglass: JFK Unspeakable Why Died Matters
This year is of course full of new JFK books, but this should definitely be on every JFK reader!
