JFK & THE UNSPEAKABLE: WHY HE DIED & WHY IT MATTERS
James W. Douglass, longtime peace activist and co-founder of Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action in Poulsbo, presents his new book, which traces a sequence of steps by JFK—from the Bay of Pigs Invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis, right up to the week of his death—that transformed him from a conventional Cold Warrior to someone determined to pull the world back from the edge of an apocalypse.
"Recent events give all the more urgency to learning what such an inquiry can teach us about how, by whom, and in whose interests this country is run." ~ Daniel Ellsberg, author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam & the Pentagon Papers. (booksense)
