JFK HIS PRESIDENTIAL WORDS, 1961-1963
JFK His Presidential Words, 1961-1963 (284 pp.)
Despite his single presidency which was cut short in a tragic way (1960-63), John Fitzgerald Kennedy has gained immortality as a politician who personified the “modern era” in post-WW2 American and international politics. In many ways, though, his image and glamour have overshadowed the essence of his political vision, so eloquently epitomized in the phrase “New Frontiers”. In this volume readers will find 29 illuminating speeches by JFK (the last two undelivered) on aspects of the Cold War, the Space Race, the freedom of the Press, etc., that contain some of the famous aphorisms associated with this promising young president.
