Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Kennedy Half-Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy of John F. Kennedy (Hardcover)
Well read, excellently researched, interesting from cover to cover. Excellent treatment as well of not only the assassination but of the failing (and reasons for failings) of the various investigations and the theories of conspiracies.
But the strength and uniqueness of this book is its focus on the Kennedy legacy as it affected the politics, policies and (most importantly) the language of each of the next electorial cycles and the resulting presidencies.
For those who love references, the footnotes and bibliography are excellent and a source of hours (hell, weeks!) of further reading.
