Synopsis

Kennedy Through the Lens How Photography and Television Revealed and Shaped an Extraordinary Leader by Martin W. Sandler

As the well-reviewed Through the Lens series continues, Sandler aims the spotlight on John F. Kennedy, one of our most photogenic presidents, providing insight into how JFK used the new medium of television and the advances in color photography to further his ambitious agenda. Sandler's extensive research at the Kennedy Library sheds light on key events in Kennedy's lifetime that combine to provide an intimate portrait of the man as a brother, a father, an activist, and a president. Out in time for the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's inauguration, this will be an essential addition to any Kennedy collection.

Reviews

A fascinating photo-essay. Kennedy's life and administration were documented with a groundbreaking intimacy the public had never known before, making this an accessible, insightful perspective on one of America's most famous presidents. --Kirkus Reviews A subject particularly well suited to the photo-essay format. As in his other Through the Lens titles, Sandler offers an engaging, insightful introduction to his subject through both visuals and text. --Booklist Photographs throughout the title are, of course, deftly selected and gloriously reproduced in both color and black and white. This will be a valuable supplement to students researching the president himself, and required reading for kids interested in media. --BCCB
