About This Item

USA,NY.AWARD BOOKS,1967.US,12mo wraps,no dw/dj - as issued, paperback original,p/back 1st edn.VG+.No owner inscrptn.White wraps with red+black lettering to both wraps and black spine/backstrip with white lettering with minimal shelf-wear to edges and negligible creasing and wraps lightly grubbed/spotted.All edges uniformly coloured,contents bright,tight and clean, considering book's age,with a dog-ear crease to top corner pp69/70.Though manufactured and printed in US,this copy has the British publisher TANDEM logo to upper wrap and spine/ backstrip with an English price of 5/-.An interesting and scarce title. The inside story that goes behind the headlines for the truth about the Kennedy book battle.The contradictory truth that even as they prepared to take their case to court, the Kennedys knew they had already lost their fight.The inescapable truth that Robert Kennedy's desperate attempts to stop publication of William Manchester's "authorized" book wrecked his own carefully planned political timetable. The unvarnished truth about the famous "controversial" passages that had little to do with Jacqueline Kennedy but which destroyed Robert Kennedy's already difficult relationship with President Johnson.The surprising truth that caused Jackie - and not Bobby - to be the instigator of the suit to suppress,making her "emotional sensibilities",the straw man in a carefully disguised political power play.The unexplained truth of the one hundred year embargo on all Manchester's tapes,documents,exhibits,transcripts of his 1,000 interviews and the original manuscript of the book supposedly written to set history right.The incredible truth of "The Bobby Phenomenon",how it had been perpetuated and how the indictment that Manchester's book would "gut Johnson",has thrown an impenetrable barricade before it.The curious truth about the one man that every one of Kennedy's actions in the Manchester suit was calculated to please,and how his displeasure has irrevocably forced RFK onto a new and dangerous political path.Forget the headlines and half-truths that have confused the real issues.Here is the full truth about the Kennedy book battle as it has never before been revealed.See also rja1148.
