Professor Mark White on JFK
In the week of the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination, Professor Mark White “salutes the president of spin” in an article in the Independent. He compares the public perception of JFK as “one of the greatest leaders in US history” with the view of many academics. This view is that he was “merely above-average”, failing to secure the passage in Congress of his Bills on education, healthcare for the aged and civil rights, failing to trigger an anti-Castro uprising, and escalating conflict in Vietnam.
