Even 40 years after that terrible day in Dallas, John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) remains one of America's most compelling -- and controversial -- chief executives. Scion-by-default of one of America's most famous families, the first Roman Catholic and the second-youngest man to occupy the White House, JFK was a study in contrasts: A man devoted to his wife and children -- and a serial womanizer; an idealist who called on Americans to live up to their country's highest principles -- and a cynical, occasionally ruthless politician; a striver for peace and international understanding -- and a sometimes reckless cold warrior. In John F. Kennedy, Joyce Milton presents an insightful assessment of the 35th president's life and legacy. Book jacket.
