Presidential profiles (Facts on File, Inc.)

Summary

"The youngest man elected to the office of the presidency, John F. Kennedy served as the 35th president of the United States until his assassination in 1963. With the memorable exhortation contained in his inaugural address, "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country," Kennedy began leading the nation on a quest for equal rights, national culture, and security." "From the unsolved mystery of his death to the rumors about his personal life, Kennedy's presidency fascinates many Americans. Written in an accessible A-to-Z format, The Kennedy Years is an invaluable introduction to Kennedy's work and legacy. More than 350 biographical entries list key figures in his administration, and numerous appendixes feature primary-source documents, such as presidential speeches and executive decisions."--BOOK JACKET.
