In the title essay Controversy , Manchester details his experience writing The Death of a President, the award-winning account of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was indeed a controversy like few others, engaging one of the most prominent historians of the day against Jackie Kennedy, the most famous, yet private, widow in the world. This 76-page essay provides a compelling insiders account of the most high-profile publishing struggle of its day.

A work of love, even passion.... Mr. Manchesters final telling of the death of Kennedy is most moving, it is also less controversial than one had been led to believe by those who read the original manuscript. --Gore Vidal

This sweeping collection further provides a penetrating look at the period between World War II and the Vietnam era. In an account thats both exacting in its accuracy and a pleasure to read, these essays cover the events that shaped world history during this period of time--from the Bay of Pigs fiasco to Watergate and Vietnam.
