About this title

Synopsis:

[Read by Arthur Morey]

One of the most celebrated historians of the era brings us his viewpoints on the his fight to publish his book on President Kennedy's death as well as other events of the time.

The writing of Death of a President, William Manchester's award-winning account of President Kennedy's assassination, is the topic of the title essay in this collection, as it was a controversy like few others, pitting one of the most prominent historians of the day against Jackie Kennedy, the most famous, and private, widow in the world. The seventy-six page essay provides an insider's account of the struggle to see the book published.

This sweeping collection further provides a penetrating look at the period between World War II and the Vietnam era. In an account that's both exacting in its accuracy and a pleasure to listen to, these essays cover the events that shaped world history during this period of time -- from the Bay of Pigs fiasco to Watergate and Vietnam.
