Beginning with the three generations of Kennedy men and women who transformed the clan from working-class Irish immigrants to members of Boston's political elite, volume 1 spans the first thirty-nine years of JFK's life, from sickly second son to restless Harvard undergraduate and World War II hero, through his ascendance on Capitol Hill and, finally, his decision to run for president
An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917 - 1963 by Robert Dallek
Publisher: Back Bay Books
The #1 bestseller that forever changed how we thought about JFK, published with a new epilogue in time for the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination. When it was originally published in 2003, AN UNFINISHED LIFE brought to light new revelations about JFK's health, his love affairs, his brothers and father, and the path JFK would have taken in the Vietnam entanglement if he had survived. A blockbuster bestseller, the book was embraced by critics and readers as a landmark assessment of our 35th president. Now, in time for what promises to be remarkable media attention on Kennedy's death and legacy, AN UNFINISHED LIFE returns with a new, strikingly incisive examination by Robert Dallek in which he further assesses JFK's impact and hold on American culture.
In 1967, a Baltimore man named Howard Donahue began investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Like countless Americans, Donahue was fascinated by the events in Dallas. But what separated him from other amateur sleuths, and even the Warren Commission experts, was a lifetime's experience with guns and ballistics. In Mortal Error, Bonar Menninger chronicles Donahue's twenty-five-year investigation of President Kennedy's death and the stunning revelation it led him to. In crisp, rapid-fire prose, Menninger relates one of the greatest true-life detective stories ever told. More important, he offers solutions to questions that have haunted America for 50 years.

The JFK Assassination Evidence Handbook: Issues, Evidence & Answers by Mike Davis
Publisher: Independently published
The JFK Assassination Evidence Handbook brings to light a wealth of evidence that the Warren Commission swept under the rug when it produced the Warren Report in 1964. Drawn from the Commission's own collection of hearings and exhibits, plus thousands of pages of unindexed documents, this evidence decisively refutes the Warren Commission's theory of Oswald as lone assassin. By applying the Commission's own evidence to the key issues of the case, supplemented by the evidence collected by subsequent government panels, The JFK Assassination Evidence Handbook shows beyond a reasonable doubt that at least three assassins targeted President Kennedy in Dallas, that Lee Oswald was not one of the shooters, that Oswald had associations not only with U. S. intelligence, but also with organized crime, that the Dallas police department provided false police radio transcripts to the Commission, that Officer J. D. Tippit's movements following the assassination raise the suspicion he was hunting for Oswald in order to silence him, and that the police department's handling of the forensic evidence was so sloppy that massive falsification and substitution of evidence against Oswald cannot be ruled out. These and many other new revelations are concisely presented and meticulously documented with numerous references to the source documents. This major addition to the assassination literature is an essential reference work and an indispensable guide for defenders of the conspiracist position. No serious student of the Kennedy assassination can afford to be without The JFK Assassination Evidence Handbook.

"The New York Times bestselling authors of Mrs. Kennedy and Me share the stories behind the five infamous, tragic days surrounding JFK's assassination--alongside revealing and iconic photographs--published in remembrance of the beloved president on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the lone secret service agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot, clinging to its sides as it sped toward the hospital. Even now, decades after JFK's presidency, the public continues to be fascinated with the Kennedys--America's royal family. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Hill recounts his indelible memories of those five days leading up to, and after, that tragic day in November 1963. Hill, as Jackie's guard, experienced those days firsthand. Alongside the famous photos everyone is familiar with, Hill provides a moment-to-moment narration evoking the feelings and emotions behind the images--clearing up the persistent conspiracy misconceptions along the way. He also shows us the little-seen photos of Jackie both before and after the terrible event, describing the poignant moments they shared, during that pivotal moment in history. Told movingly by a man who stillwishes he could undo it all, Five Days in November is a rare and deeply personal look at the assassination that affected the entire world and changed the United States forever"--
The Kennedys have always been a family of charismatic adventurers, raised to take risks and excel, living by the dual family mottos: "To whom much is given, much is expected" and "Win at all costs." And they do--but at a price. Across decades and generations, the Kennedys have occupied a unique place in the American imagination: charmed, cursed, at once familiar and unknowable. The House of Kennedy is a revealing, fascinating account of America's most storied family, as told by America's most trusted storyteller.
