Listening In: The Secret White House Recordings of John F. Kennedy by Ted Widmer


In July 1962, to be able to keep a correct record of Presidentificationential determination-making in a highly charged setting of conflicting viewelements, methods and tactics, John F. Kennedy put in hidentificationden recording programs in the Oval administrative center and in the cabinet Room. the result's a helpful historic archive comprising some 26five hours of taped material. JFK was elected presidentificationent while Civil Rights tensions have been close to the boiling element, and american citizens feared a nuclear struggle. confronted with advanced dilemmas necessitating rapid and unparalleled action, Presidentificationent Kennedy engaged in severe discussion and debate together with his cupboard participants and other advisors.

Now, at the side of the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy presidentificationency, the loo F.

Listening In represents a uniquely unscripted, insidentificationer account of a presidentificationent and his cupboard grappling with the day-to-day trade of the White area and guidentificationing the nation via a risky era of uncertainty.

accompanied by way of broadly annotated transcripts of the recordings, and with a foreword by way of Caroline Kennedy, Listening In delivers the tale behind the tale in the unguarded words and voices of the verdict-makers themselves.

Kennedy keeps to resonate part a century after his stirring speeches and ambitious policy choices, the documentary candor of Listening In imparts a vividentification, breathtaking immediacy in order to significantly extend our understanding of his time in office.
