The Cuban Missile Crisis : a concise history by Don Munton( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors distill the best current scholarship on the Cuban missile crisis into a brief narrative history. They draw on newly available documents to provide a comprehensive treatment of its causes, events, consequences, and significance. Stressing the importance of context in relation to the genesis, conduct, and resolution of the crisis, the U.S., Soviet, and Cuban angles are examined, revealing the vital role differences in national perspectives played at every stage. While the book provides a concise, up-to-date look at this pivotal event, it also notes gaps and mysteries in the historical record and highlights important persistent interpretive disputes. The authors provide a detailed guide to the literature and film for those who wish to explore further. The Cuban Missile Crisis is ideal for undergraduate courses on the 1960s, U.S. foreign policy, the Cold War, twentieth-century world history, and comparative foreign policy

Vietnam if Kennedy had lived : virtual JFK by James G Blight( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tackling head-on the most controversial and debated what if in U.S. foreign policy, this provocative work explores what President John F. Kennedy would have done in Vietnam had he not been assassinated in 1963. Drawing on a wealth of recently declassified documents, frank oral testimony of White House officials from both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and the analysis of top historians, this book presents compelling evidence that JFK was ready to end U.S. involvement well before the conflict escalated. With vivid immediacy, readers will feel they are in the president's war room as the debates raged that forever changed the course of American history and continue to affect us profoundly as the shadows of Vietnam stretch into Iraq

Virtual JFK : Vietnam if Kennedy had lived( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does it matter who is President of the United States when it comes to issues of war and peace? It explores this question by investigating one of the most debated "what if" scenarios in the history of U.S. foreign policy: What would President John F. Kennedy have done in Vietnam if he had not been assassinated in 1963, and had he been re-elected in 1964? The film employs what Harvard historian Niall Ferguson calls "virtual history," assessing the plausibility of counterfactuals--"what ifs"--The outcomes they might have produced. Drawing on unusual archival footage from presidential libraries and the National Archives, along with newly deciphered audio tapes and other documentary evidence, the film draws our attention to six highly charged crises Kennedy faced in which many, or most, of his advisers counseled war: The Bay of Pigs, The Laos Crisis, the Berlin Crisis, the Showdown over Vietnam, The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Withdrawal from Vietnam"--Container
