The John F. Kennedy Handbook is an uncompromising and revealing analysis of Kennedy's life, presidency and leadership. Inside information based on exclusive interviews with Noam Chomsky, world-renowned political and social analyst and media critic, on JFK's aggression against Vietnam and Cuba; Fabi_n Escalante, former head of Cuban intelligence,  reveals remarkable insider-information on the assassination; and Carlos Lechuga, Cuban Ambassador to the United Nations during the Cuban Missile Crisis, provides a dramatic on-the-spot account of those fateful thirteen days. George Galloway, the British MP said it is "An explosive, revealing, uncompromising portrait." Howard Zinn said, "This is an unusual book, combining a remarkable array of photographs with sharp insights into the life and work of John Kennedy.  His interview with Noam Chomsky is alone worth the price of the book." 
Over 150 evocative photographs and rare collectibles provide a visual and personal narrative documentary of John F. Kennedy's life. 
The John F. Kennedy handbook is a hard-hitting, well-judged account of the making of the first television savvy American president, driven by one of the wealthiest, most ambitious families of modern times-the Kennedy political machine. The book includes essays on John F. Kennedy's high pressure childhood, chronic health problems, womanizing, political influences, his emergence as a fervent Cold Warrior, the record of his presidency-Cuba, Vietnam, Berlin, civil rights, his assassination and his legacy.
