Jacqueline Kennedy nos habla por primera vez de su vida con JFK. Un testimonio histórico que sale ahora a la luz en esta edición coordinada por su hija Caroline. Poco después del asesinato de John F. Kennedy, con la nación entera de luto y en un ambiente de fuerte conmoción internacional, Jacqueline Kennedy encontró la fortaleza necesaria para dejar de lado su dolor y contribuir a mantener vivo el legado de su marido. En enero de 1964 ella y su cuñado, Robert F. Kennedy, aprobaron un proyecto de historia oral que recogiera los acontecimientos más reseñables de la presidencia de Kennedy como ejemplo para las futuras generaciones. A principios de marzo la que fuera primera dama de Norteamérica se sentó junto al historiador y premio Pulitzer, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., para hablar de las aspiraciones políticas de Kennedy, los primeros años de casados, su carácter, los hábitos de lectura de JFK, sus héroes de infancia, la vida en la Casa Blanca,la revolución cubana o Bahía Cochinos, entre otros muchos temas. Aquellas cintas fueron grabadas y la información que contenía nunca se publicó. Hoy, 50 años después, y gracias al impulso de su hija Caroline salen a la luz. Jacqueline Kennedy. Conversaciones históricas sobre mi vida con John F. Kennedy es una obra de historia oral -trufada de fotografías personales e inéditas- que da voz a uno de los testigos cruciales de aquel tiempo, una mujer que por desgracia ha estado ausente en todos los libros que se han escrito sobre John F. Kennedy hasta el momento. Ahora le toca hablar a ella, a Jacqueline Kennedy. La mañana de su muerte, el 19 de mayo de 1994, The New York Times destacaba el silencio que siempre guardó sobre su pasado, es más sus años junto a Kennedy y su matrimonio fueron siempre un misterio. Estas conversaciones son un documento magistral, una lección de historia y una confesión íntima que supone el final del silencio. «Grabadas menos de cuatro meses después de la muerte de su marido, estas conversaciones suponen un regalo para la posteridad y una muestra de amor. Mis hijos y yo hemos decidido publicarlas ahora con motivo del 50 aniversario de la presidencia de mi padre. Espero que las generaciones futuras encuentren en estos recuerdos inspiración».

«Este es un libro acerca de la virtud más admirable de todas las virtudes humanas: el valor. Ernest Hemingway la definió como “gracia bajo presión”. Y estos son los relatos sobre las presiones que experimentaron ocho Senadores de Estados Unidos y la gracia con la cual las enfrentaron». —John F. Kennedy Durante los años 1954 y 1955, el entonces Senador de Estados Unidos, John F. Kennedy, escogió a ocho de sus colegas históricos para presentar sus perfiles, destacados por sus actos de impresionante integridad ante una oposición abrumadora. Entre estos héroes se encuentran John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Thomas Hart Benton y Robert A. Taft. Este libro recibió el Premio Pulitzer en 1957, y ha vuelto al mercado en esta nueva edición coeditada con el Senado de la Respública de México, que incluye una introducción escrita por Caroline Kennedy, además del prólogo para la edición conmemorativa escrito por Robert Kennedy, lanzada en 1964, resuena con lecciones perdurables para todos los tiempos sobre la más apreciada de las virtudes, y es una poderosa remembranza de la fortaleza del espíritu humano. Como afirma Robert Kennedy en el prólogo, este es «no solo un conjunto de historias del pasado, sino también una conexión de esperanza y confianza para el futuro. Lo que suceda en la nación, y en el mundo, depende de lo que nosotros hagamos con lo que otros nos han dejado».

The instant New York Times and USA Today bestseller! The untold story of how one woman's life was changed forever in a matter of seconds by a horrific trauma. Barbara Leaming's extraordinary and deeply sensitive biography is the first book to document Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' brutal, lonely and valiant thirty-one year struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that followed JFK's assassination. Here is the woman as she has never been seen before. In heartrending detail, we witness a struggle that unfolded at times before our own eyes, but which we failed to understand. Leaming's biography also makes clear the pattern of Jackie's life as a whole. We see how a spirited young woman's rejection of a predictable life led her to John F. Kennedy and the White House, how she sought to reconcile the conflicts of her marriage and the role she was to play, and how the trauma of her husband's murder which left her soaked in his blood and brains led her to seek a very different kind of life from the one she'd previously sought. A life story that has been scrutinized countless times, seen here for the first time as the serious and important story that it is. A story for our times at a moment when we as a nation need more than ever to understand the impact of trauma.

With more than a hundred photos, videos, recorded phone conversations, letters, and speeches, this enhanced eBook edition of Indomitable Will brings to life the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson like never before. Nearly fifty years after being sworn in as president of the United States in the wake of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Baines Johnson remains a largely misunderstood figure. His force of personal­ity, mastery of power and the political process, and boundless appetite for social reform made him one of the towering figures of his time. But he was one of the most protean and paradoxical of presidents as well. Because of his flawed nature and inherent contradic­tions, some claimed there were as many LBJs as there were people who knew him. Intent on fulfilling the promise of America, Johnson launched a revolution in civil rights, federal aid to education, and health care for the elderly and indigent, and expanded immigration and environ­mental protection. A flurry of landmark laws—he would sign an unparalleled 207 during his five years in office, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965, Elementary and Second­ary Education Act, Head Start, and Medicare—are testaments to the triumph of his will. His War on Poverty alone brought the U.S. poverty rate down from 20 percent to 12 percent, the biggest one-time drop in American history. As president, he was known for getting things done. At the same time, Johnson’s presidency—and the fulfillment of its own promise—was blighted by his escalation of an ill-fated war in Vietnam that tore at the fabric of America and saw the loss of 36,000 U.S. troops by the end of his term. Presidential historian Mark K. Updegrove offers an intimate portrait of the endlessly fas­cinating LBJ, his extraordinarily eventful presi­dency, and the turbulent times in which he served. We see Johnson in his many guises and dimen­sions: the virtuoso deal-maker using every inch of his six-foot-three-inch frame to intimidate his subjects, the relentless reformer willing to lose southern Democrats from his party for a generation in his pursuit of civil rights for all Americans, and the embattled commander in chief agonizing over the fate of his “boys” in Vietnam—including his two sons-in-law—yet steadfast in his determination to thwart Communist aggression through war, or an honorable peace. Through original interviews and personal accounts from White House aides and Cabinet members, political allies and foes, and friends and family—from Robert McNamara to Barry Goldwa­ter, Lady Bird Johnson to Jacqueline Kennedy—as well as through Johnson’s own candid reflections and historic White House telephone conversa­tions, Indomitable Will reveals LBJ as never before. “ For it is through firsthand narrative more than anything,” writes Updegrove, “that Lyndon John­son—who teemed with vitality in his sixty-four years and remains enigmatic nearly four decades after his passing—comes to life.”

This is an Enhanced E-Book Edition with videos and pictures. President John F. Kennedy tried to Warn us of the secrete Shadow Government that has taken control of our country."There is a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot." In a speech three weeks before he was murdered, John F. Kennedy asked the American people "for their help in this tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people!" For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our Citizens whenever they are fully informed." Because he knew that he could not defeat this secrete society of corporate demons on his own. But "I am confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be, Free and Independent." Kennedy realized as do many American's today that the CIA possessed entirely too much power and was placing our Nation in grave danger acting on their own starting war after war, after war, without the consent or authority of either the President, Congress, or the American people. Kennedy angrily vowed to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter them to the winds. "Twice the CIA flatly refused to carry out the President's orders concerning Vietnam and their planned invasion of Cuba, because the agency disagreed with him." Kennedy "likened" the CIA'S growth to a malignancy, which he was not sure even the White House could control any longer." The agency "represents a tremendous power and total unaccountability to anyone." Kennedy went on to say that, "If the United States ever experiences an attempt at a coup to overthrow the Government, it will come from the CIA." John F. Kennedy tried to end the Wars and do away with the Federal Reserve "Banksters" that control our government, and a month later they blew his brains out into a thousand pieces and scattered them to the winds.

Enhanced with stunning videos and photographs throughout, illustrating the impact of Kennedy’s presidency and death, the true story of the critical events leading up to and following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, in full for the first time by the Secret Service agents who were firsthand witnesses to one of America’s greatest tragedies, and have lived for forty-seven years with unresolved guilt and grief. Drawing on the memories of his fellow agents, Jerry Blaine captures the energetic, crowd-loving young president, who banned agents from his car and often plunged into raucous crowds with little warning. Here are vivid scenes that could come only from inside the Kennedy detail: JFK’s last words to his tearful son when he left Washington for the last time; how a sudden change of weather led to the choice of the open-air convertible limousine that day; Mrs. Kennedy standing blood-soaked outside a Dallas hospital room; the sudden interruption of six-year-old Caroline’s long-anticipated sleepover with a friend at home; the exhausted team of agents immediately reacting to the president’s death with a shift to LBJ and other key governmental figures; the agents’ dismay at Jackie’s decision to walk openly from the White House to St. Matthew’s Cathedral at the state funeral. Most of all, this is a look into the lives of men who devoted their entire beings to protecting the presidential family: the stress of the secrecy they kept, the emotional bonds that developed, the terrible impact on agents’ psyches and families, and their astonishment at the country’s obsession with far-fetched conspiracy theories and finger-pointing. A book fifty years in coming, The Kennedy Detail is a portrait of incredible camaraderie and incredible heartbreak—a true, must-read story of heroism in its most complex and human form.

El 22 de noviembre de 1963, en la ciudad de Dallas, murió asesinado John Fitzgerald Kennedy, presidente de Estados Unidos, y nació el mito. Para entender el calado de JFK en la cultura popular, no solo estadounidense, hay que retrotraerse a Irlanda, lugar de origen de la poderosa dinastía Kennedy. Hay que recorrer, como hace Robert Dallek, la apasionante historia de las primeras campañas políticas del futuro presidente, desvelar cómo seleccionó JFK a Lyndon Johnson para la vicepresidencia y analizar cómo se enfrentó a la invasión de Bahía de Cochinos, a las amenazas contra activistas de los derechos civiles en el sur, al conflicto en Laos, a la crisis de los misiles cubanos o a la escalada armamentística de la URSS. Esta es la biografía definitiva de John Fitzgerald Kennedy, un héroe para los estadounidenses, pero sobre todo un hombre corriente, con sus miserias y debilidades, hábilmente ocultadas bajo la imagen de una vida pública triunfal. Un hombre que estaba mucho más enfermo de lo que suponía todo el mundo, y que necesitó medicación a lo largo de toda su presidencia. Que fue infiel en numerosas ocasiones a su esposa, Jackie, más veces incluso de lo que la mayoría supone. Que, como se sabía cercano a la muerte, vivió la vida con toda la intensidad que pudo... A menudo sin pensar en las consecuencias.

Pulitzer Prize Finalist: “By far the most lucid and compelling account . . . of what probably did happen in Dallas—and what almost certainly did not.” —The New York Times Book Review The Kennedy assassination has reverberated for five decades, with tales of secret plots, multiple killers, and government cabals often overshadowing the event itself. As Gerald Posner writes, “Fifty years after the assassination, the biggest casualty has been the truth.” In this first-ever digital edition of his classic work, updated with a special comment for the fiftieth anniversary, Posner lays to rest all of the convoluted conspiracy theories—concerning the mafia, a second shooter, and the CIA—that have obscured over the decades what really happened in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Drawing from official sources and dozens of interviews, and filled with powerful historical detail, Case Closed is a vivid and straightforward account that stands as one of the most authoritative books on the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
