Kennedys - The complete 8-parts series

DVD
2011

The story of the most fabled political family in American history, told in a manner similar to The Godfather: a manipulative, egocentric father determined to live out his own ambitions through his sons, who in turn spent their lives dancing to his tune while at the same time trying to stand on their own. This is history through personality - the tangled relationships through which paint a picture of one of the most turbulent periods of the modern age. Viewers will be upstairs at the White House, not in the Cabinet Room. Through iconic events in history - the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil rights struggle, the mob connection - viewers will learn about the lesser known, yet critical personal stories.

The name of Kennedy is forever linked to the history of the twentieth century. More than any other, this family has embodied the American dream. But fate has thrown full light seemed to want to punish him for his unabashed success in hitting its most illustrious members of violent death. So the myth "Kennedy" has grown between truths and lies. And so the legend is made of a dynasty both elected and cursed ...

Mrs Kennedy and me
Hill Clint
2012

For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the secrete Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jaqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardin to a fircely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend.
Now, looking back fifty years, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender, enthralling, and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in a North Dakota orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady who captivated first the nation and then the world.

Mrs Kennedy : the missing history of the Kennedy years
Leaming Barbara
2001

In this landmark work, critically acclaimed biographer Barbara Leaming has written the first full account - poignant and deeply sympathetic- of Jaqueline Kennedy during the dramatic thousand days of John F.Kennedy's presidency.

Mutual Contempt
Shesol Jeff
1997

Lyndon Johnson and Robert Kennedy loathed each other. Larger-than-life rivalries have always fuelled American public life, but even in this context the visceral antagonism between Johnson and Kennedy was extraordinary - propelled by clashing personalities, contrasting views and an abiding animosity. Until 1963 the two men were held in an uneasy truce by their allegiance to John F.Kennedy, but fate and personal ambition would drive them apart, into a bitterness so deep that even civil conversation was often impossible.
Drawing on previously unexamined recordings and documents, as well as memoirs, biographies and scores of personal interviews, Jeff Shesol weaves the threads of this story into a tight and gripping narrative that reflects the profound impact of this relationship on politics, civil rights, the war on poverty and the war in Vietnam.

My life with Jacqueline Kennedy
Gallagher Mary Barelli
1969

Reading this book in its entirety, one can fully understand the complexities of Jacqueline Kennedy's life and personality.
The author, Mary Gallagher, was uniquely situated to understand the real woman beneath the goddess-figure that the world has made of Jacqueline Kennedy, having been her personal secretary for eight years. She joined her in 1954 shortly after her marriage to Senator John F.Kennedy staying with her through the White House years.
