During the years from 1960 to 1963, the American people passes through the most dangerous period since World War II. Parents buillt fallout shelters. Children raced through duck-and-cover drills. Americans withstood a series of shocks - the Bay of Pigs, the Vienna summit, the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, John Kennedy's assassination, and Nikita Khruschev's overthrow - whose origins and connection they could only dimly understand. Now, in a gripping narrative, a distinguished historian shows us how and why it all happened. Shows how character can determine the outcome of historical events. Includes an Index.
