22, 1963: JFK does not die. What would happen to his life, his presidency, his
country, his world?
Then Everything Changed, Jeff Greenfield explored three modern alternate
histories based on memoirs, histories, oral histories, fresh reporting, and his
own knowledge of the players, the book looked at the tiny hinges of history—and
the extraordinary changes that would have resulted if they had gone another
he presents his most compelling narrative of all about the historical event
that has riveted us for fifty years. What if Kennedy were not killed that
fateful day? What would the 1964 campaign have looked like? Would changes have
been made to the ticket? How would Kennedy, in his second term, have approached
Vietnam, civil rights, the Cold War? With Hoover as an enemy, would his
indiscreet private life finally have become public? Would his health issues
have become so severe as to literally cripple his presidency? And what small
turns of fate in the days and years before Dallas might have kept him from ever
reaching the White House in the first place?
with Then Everything Changed, the answers Greenfield provides and the
scenarios he develops are startlingly realistic, rich in detail, shocking in
their projections, but always deeply, remarkably plausible. It is a tour de
force of American political history. Download and start listening now!
