Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743222210, Hardcover)"Carl Anthony takes you inside the world's most famous goldfish bowl for a glimpse at life in the White House as you've never seen it before."
-- Julie N. Eisenhower
The 337 full-color and black-and-white photos, taken by the primary White House photographers, are unstaged and provide a far more natural, spontaneous, and realistic portrait of the family than ever before; most of them, including color photographs of each of the private rooms, have never been seen, and they present an unparalleled look at life as it was lived behind the White House doors.
This is also the first book to place the Kennedy family within the context of the culture of the early 1960s and tell the story of the president's personal maturity through his evolving family relationships. Historical events like the Cuban Missile Crisis are uniquely viewed from the family's perspective.
An appealing combination of history, biography, and popular culture, "The Kennedy White House"sheds new light on a family that continues to fascinate the American public forty years after they first captivated our attention.
