Debating The Kennedy PresidencyBook - 2003
Despite the brevity of John F. Kennedy's presidency, its significance endures. From the Cuban missile crisis and the creation of the Berlin Wall to the Peace Corps and the civil rights movement, Kennedy's presidency was one of crisis and change. In Debating the Kennedy Presidency, scholars James N. Giglio and Stephen G. Rabe examine the successes and failure of Kennedy's foreign and domestic policies. Rabe's essay focuses on the administration's foreign relations, while Giglio's essay surveys domestic policies. The differing viewpoints of the two authors, as well as the supplementary documents, provide an ideal book that allows students to debate the issues and draw their own conclusions about America's 35th president.
