JFK: Volume 1: 1917-1956

Fredrik Logevall

This is the untold story of how the rise of President Kennedy and the rise of the United States mirror one another - from 1917, when Kennedy was born, to 1963, when he died and the US was at the peak of its power.

Full of new material from sources including a huge number of Oval Office tapes, a large volume of interviews with Jackie Kennedy, and never-before-seen CIA documents, Harvard professor Logevall focuses on international relations more so than any other biographer of this misunderstood figure. For example, he uncovers detailed material not only on President Kennedy’s father as ambassador to Britain but also on his rapidly-established relationship with Harold Macmillan, and on his and Jackie’s relationships with individuals in the United Kingdom.

Peerlessly authoritative, this is a biography for the ages.
