Remembering Jack
Lowe Jacques
2003
Jacques Lowe's photographs of the Kennedys, taken during his tenure as JFK's personal photographer, have become the iconic imagery of a time that remains vividly etched in the national psyche. Upon Lowe's death, commentators credited his picture with creating the myth of Camelot.
Of Lowe's  forty thousand Kennedy's photographs, only a few hundred have ever been seen, and all of his negatives, which were housed in a vault in the World Trade Center, were destroyed on Sept.11,2001. For this definitive book, fine reproductions have been created from existing prints and contact sheets - in some cases of images he never even printed. This book features more than 600 pictures, half of which are previously unpublished.

Selling Outer Space
[Kennedy, the Media and Funding for Project Apollo, 1961-1963]
Kauffman James L.

The Best Year of Their Lives: Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon in 1948
Morrow Lance
2005
In 1948, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon were ambitious young congressmen in postwar Washington, all of them at a crucial turning point in their personal lives and public careers. Their future presidencies would dominate American public life from 1961 to 1974 and define one of the country's most turbulent eras. In this tightly-framed portrait, journalist Lance Morrow explores the passions, ambitions and demons that drove these men, and reflexts on the shadow they cast on American culture and memory.
The Burden and The Glory
Kennedy John Fitzgerald
(edited by Allan Nevins)
1964
The Hopes and Purposes of President Kennedy's second and third years in office as revealed in his public statements and addresses
The Bystander 
[John F.Kennedy and the struggle for Black Equality]
Bryant Nick
2006
In this book, the first comprehensive history of Kennedy's civil rights record over the course of his entire political career, Nick Bryant shows that Kennedy's shrewd handling of the race issue in his early congressional campaigns blinded him as president to the intractability of the simmering racial crisis in America. By focusing on mainly symbolic gestures, Kennedy missed crucial opportunities to confront the obstructionist Southern bloc and to enact genuine reform.
