An in-depth journey through America and the world in the postwar years, from a New York Times–bestselling historian and biographer.
Among his many accomplishments, William Manchester was especially known for his book The Death of a President, the award-winning account of the assassination of John F. Kennedy that embroiled him in a lawsuit filed by Jackie Kennedy. The title essay in this collection recounts the experience of publishing that book, and of his battle with JFK’s widow.
In addition, Controversy includes a wide range of journalistic pieces published in the period between World War II and Vietnam, covering events from the Bay of Pigs fiasco to Watergate and highlighting the insights and observations of a distinguished career that earned the author the National Humanities Medal and the Abraham Lincoln Literary Award, among other honors.
“A work of love, even passion. . . . Mr. Manchester’s final telling of the death of Kennedy is most moving.” —Gore Vidal
