A former admirer of Kennedy, Univ. of Wisconsin history professor Reeves (The Life and Times of Joe McCarthy, ; Gentleman Boss, ) vents his spleen and disillusionment against the claims of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Theodore Sorensen, and other Camelot chroniclers. The saga of John F. Kennedy lives on for most Americans who witnessed his all too brief presidency. Its beginnings at the Capitol on a cold and snowy Jan, inauguration day and its ending with the shots fired from an abandoned floor of a Dallas warehouse on Nov, are etched in memory for millions who felt they somehow were participants in the unfolding drama.

Kennedy by Frank B. Freidel, Jr. has good but now-aging coverage, concluding with a book-based bibliography dating to about Character Above All - John F.
