From the cover: This is a gripping account of the last months of JFKs life that weaves together his public and private life and addresses the most tantalizing mystery of all not who killed him but who he was when he was killed, and where he would have led his country and the world.
Thurston Clarkes re-examination of this critical period looks at all the areas of the presidents life: the progress he made towards ending the Cold War, passing the Civil Rights Act and withdrawing US troops from Vietnam, as well as his grief at the death of his infant son Patrick, his ongoing battle with ill health and his renewed determination to be a good husband and father.
The resulting portrait reveals the essence of this charismatic man, his personal transformation and the emergence of a great president. It also explains the widespread and enduring grief following his assassination, mourning the loss of the remarkable promise that had become increasingly evident during his last hundred days.
