Description
This fly-on-the-wall narrative from historian David Coleman, director of the Miller Center's Presidential Recordings Program, takes us into the Oval Office in the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis, using John F. Kennedy's secret White House tapes. On October 28, 1962, after 13 days of unparalleled brinkmanship with JFK, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev agreed to remove nuclear missiles from Cuba, yet the missiles remained in Cuba, as were other weapons and thousands of Soviet troops. As Coleman shows, Kennedy continued to walk a very fine line, pushing Khrushchev without forcing him into a combative stance, while also keeping the press at bay in a midterm election season.

"Amid shelves of books on the Kennedy era, here at last is a genuinely fresh and interesting volume about his presidency. Coleman now leads the documentary team that transcribes and explains the recordings of meetings and phone calls that JFK secretly hoarded. Armed with that evidence and an exceptionally firm grasp of the personalities, institutions, and issues of that time, Coleman skillfully shows us a pivotal year, 1962 to mid-1963, the turning point of the Cold War and of the Kennedy presidency."—Philip Zelikow
