John F. Kennedy: A Reference Guide to His Life and Works cover all aspects of his life and work. Despite his short tenure in office, Kennedy shaped the domestic and international direction of the nation for decades to come. He is remembered domestically for the hope and encouragement he instilled in the struggle for civil rights, his support for the freedom riders and for equality for women. Abroad, his memory lives in his handling of the Cold War against an aggressive Soviet Union and such events as the Berlin crisis and Wall, his intervention in the Vietnam War, the invasion of Cuba and Bay of Pigs disaster, the Cuban Missile crisis, and the beginnings of space exploration-all of which tested the young, relatively inexperienced, leader.

Includes a detailed chronology detailing John F. Kennedy's life, family, and work. *The A to Z section includes family members, his handling of the Cold War, and such events as the Berlin crisis and Wall, his intervention in the Vietnam War, the invasion of Cuba and Bay of Pigs disaster, the Cuban Missile crisis, and the beginnings of space exploration. *The bibliography includes a list of publications concerning his life and work. *The index thoroughly cross-references the chronological and encyclopedic entries.
