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.

The rest of the sweeping collection examines the time period between World War II and the Vietnam era. It is an account that’s both exactingly accurate and a pleasure to read.
