In the title essay Controversy, Manchester details his experience writing The Death of a President, the award-winning account of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was indeed a controversy like few others, engaging one of the most prominent historians of the day against Jackie Kennedy, the most famous, yet private, widow in the world. This 76-page essay provides a compelling insider's account of the most high-profile publishing struggle of its day.

"A work of love, even passion.... Mr. Manchester's final telling of the death of Kennedy is most moving; it is also less controversial than one had been led to believe by those who read the original manuscript." --Gore Vidal

This sweeping collection further provides a penetrating look at the period between World War II and the Vietnam era. In an account that's both exacting in its accuracy and a pleasure to read, these essays cover the events that shaped world history during this period of time--from the Bay of Pigs fiasco to Watergate and Vietnam.
