Thirty years after President Kennedy's assassination, the meaning & the legacy of his presidency are as much the subject of controversy as the facts of his murder. Was JFK the tool of the "Eastern Establishment," or was he its bitterest foe? Did his policies - domestic & foreign, implemented & unfulfilled - represent a continuation of domination by the powers that be, or did he attempt, & in some cases effectuate, a break with formidable traditions of the past? For the fist time, what Kennedy really said, what he thought & how he proposed to change the way the system worked in this country have been analyzed in absorbing detail by a scholar trained in economics & political power. Donald Gibson is a professor at the University of Pittsburgh who teaches courses in Wealth & Power & in Technology & Social Change. His articles have appeared in numerous academic journals. Order from Sheridan Square Press, 145 W. 4th St., New York, NY 10012; 212-254- 1061.
