Packed with never-before-seen photographs, The Kennedy White House reveals the world's most famous family, unstaged and as they were, both behind White House doors and in their private homes in Virginia, Palm Beach, Newport, and Hyannis Port. Carl Sferrazza Anthony's fascinating narrative brings new insight to the Kennedy story, in the first book to place the family within the context of 1960s culture and view historical events uniquely from the personal perspective of their family life. A candid and compelling tour, The Kennedy White House "takes you inside the world's most famous goldfish bowl for a glimpse at life in the White House as you've never seen it before" (Julie N. Eisenhower).
