Book News
Appealing to students and general readers, this 9x12" book collects 144 front-page newspaper pages (most in English, with a few foreign newspapers) with stories and photo spreads about the Kennedys over the decades. Each front page facsimile is complete with its own color or b&w photos. Because the type size is too small to read in the reproductions, each page also includes margin notes summarizing the event, quotes from Kennedy family members, and notes on other significant political and cultural events of the period. The articles are organized in chapters by decade, from the 1960s to the 2000s, covering historical events, speeches, marriages, and other milestones from the political ascendance of John F. Kennedy to the death of Senator Edward Kennedy. The book concludes with the complete text of four eulogies delivered by Edward Kennedy at services for family members, plus the eulogy delivered by President Obama at Senator Edward Kennedy's funeral service.

One of the most influential families in American history, the Kennedys have had their lives documented by the media for the past 50 years. The Kennedys: America's Front-Page Family tells the story of this fascinating family through a collection of newspaper front pages gathered from the archives of The Poynter Institute.

From the political rise and assassination of President John F. Kennedy to the final accomplishments and passing of Senator Ted Kennedy, nothing paints a clearer and timelier picture of these historic events than the stories written by the writers and editors of the world's newspapers. A few of the events that are featured include JFK's declaration for the presidency, JFK's "man on the moon" address, the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missle Crisis, Robert Kennedy's assasination, JFK Jr.'s plane crash, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's marriage, and Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Barack Obama during the 2008 election.
