PUBLISHERW.W. Norton & Company
CITYNew York, NY

This book addresses the period from October 29, 1962, through the end of February 1963, when U.S. President John F. Kennedy and his advisors were dealing with the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The author makes extensive use of Oval Office tapes that recorded meetings, conversations, telephone calls, and dictations from July 1962 to November 1963. They reveal the President’s confrontations with the press over tight control of information, negotiations with the Soviet Union and Cuba to restore pre-crisis relations, and responses to domestic critics of his handling of the crisis. The book emphasizes the importance of the several months following the Crisis for the perspective they provide on Kennedy's presidency.
