9780143125730: JFK's Last Hundred Days: The Transformation of a Man and the Emergence of a Great President

'Poignant, fascinating, entertaining and informative ... reminds us exactly how much did happen in that time span and of how many tantalising hints he left behind' Financial Times

'Brilliantly captures Kennedy's entire life through the prism of his final months ... the hero, like the devil, is in the detail' Mark Mason, Spectator, Books of the Year

'Wonderfully vivid' Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

'A vivid portrait of Kennedy as an immensely complex human being: by turns detached and charismatic, a hard-nosed politician and a closet romantic, cautious in his decision making but reckless in his womanizing' Michicko Kakutani, New York Times

'A superb piece of writing - richly detailed and, considering that the end is all too well known, surprisingly enthralling' Frank Gannon, Wall Street Journal

'The great merit of Clarke's account is that it encompasses both sides of Kennedy: the statesman and the chancer; the moralist and the opportunist' David Runciman, New Statesman

'A superb book ... has the ominousness of a Shakespearean tragedy' Roger Lewis, Daily Mail

Book Description Penguin Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 214 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A revelatory, minute-by-minute account of JFK s final days that asks what might have been Fifty years after his assassination, President John F. Kennedy s legend endures. Noted author and historian Thurston Clarke reexamines the last months of the president s life to show a man in the midst of great change, both in his family and in the key issues of his day: the cold war, civil rights, and Vietnam, finally on the cusp of making good on his extraordinary promise. JFK s Last Hundred Days presents a gripping account that weaves together Kennedy s public and private lives, explains why the grief following his assassination has endured so long, and solves the most tantalizing Kennedy mystery of them all not who killed him but who he was when he was killed and where he would have led us.
