On the July 18, 1969 the car driven by Senator Edward Moore Kennedy, then a 37-year-old United States Senator plunged off Dike Bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, his passenger Mary Jo Kopechne died. From the dj, 'In seeking the answers to the many questions that surround the Chappaquiddick incident, Leo Damore conducted over 200 interviews, many with people close to the case - including police officers - who had never before spoken to the press. He had access to the files on Chappquiddick locked in the district attorney's vault in Barnstable, and to personal notes about the case kept by key investigators of the accident. The result of his meticulous research is Senatorial Privilege, the true story of what really happened during those dark hours of at Poucha Pond, and over the months ahead, in the world of the Kennedy compound, as a massive apparatus of power and influence schemed and plotted to assure for Ted Kennedy life-after-Chappaquiddick's-death.'

8 EPSTEIN, EDWARD JAY Inquest. The Warren Commission and the Establishment of Truth.
New York Viking Press, 1966 Hard Cover 
Introduction by Richard H. Rovere. 224 pages, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: In the course of interviewing nearly all members of the Commission, and many members of its staff, he discovered that the official version of the Kennedy assassination fails to content with serious contradictions presented by the evidence. Inquest clearly traces the process by which this official story came into being; it does not indulge in theoretical speculation about a deliberate suppression of crucial evidence. Mr. Epstein instead proposes an explanation based on the concept of 'political truth': the Commission, sincerely convinced that the national interest would best be served by the termination of rumors, and predisposed by its make-up and by the pressure of time not to search more deeply, failed to answer some of the essential questions about the tragedy.

11 HERSH, BURTON The Education of Edward Kennedy: A Family Biography
New York William Morrow & Co. 1972 Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Foreword by James MacGregor Burns. 510 pages, 8 plates, cloth, dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: Ted Kennedy, (Edward Moore Kennedy), 1932-, U.S. senator from Massachusetts (1962-), brother of John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy and youngest son of Joseph P. Kennedy, b. Boston, Mass. He served (1961-62) as an assistant district attorney in Massachusetts before being elected (1962) as a Democrat to the U.S. Senate. After the assassination of his brother Robert in 1968, he became the acknowledged leader of Senate liberals and served (1969-71) as assistant majority leader. His political future was marred by his involvement in the Chappaquiddick incident (July, 1969), in which Mary Jo Kopechne, a passenger, drowned when the car he was driving fell into a creek. Kennedy's reputation recovered, however, and he continued to advocate such liberal programs as national health insurance and tax reform. He was long considered a potential Democratic president, but withdrew in 1974 from the 1976 race and failed in a 1980 primary challenge to Jimmy Carter. He has chaired the Senate judiciary (1979-81), labor and human resources (1987-95), and health, education, labor, and pensions (2001-3) committees. Kennedy is the author of Decisions for a Decade (1968) and In Critical Condition (1972).

12 HERSH, SEYMOUR The Dark Side of Camelot
Boston Little Brown & Co. , 1997 0316359556 / 9780316359559 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
498 pages, 8 plates, cloth, dj, very good. 1st edition. From the Publisher: Investigative journalist Seymour M. Hersh shows us a John F. Kennedy we have never seen before, a man insulated from the normal consequences of behavior long before he entered the White House. His father, Joe, set the pattern with an arrogance and cunning that have never been fully appreciated: Kennedys could do exactly what they wanted, and could evade any charge brought against them. Kennedys wrote their own moral code. And Kennedys trusted only Kennedys. Jack appointed his brother Bobby keeper of the secrets-the family debt to organized crime, the real state of Jack's health, the sources of his election victories, the plots to murder foreign leaders, and the president's intentions in Vietnam. The brothers prided themselves on another trait inherited from their father-a voracious appetite for women-and indulged it with a daily abandon deeply disturbing to the Secret Service agents who witnessed it. These men speak for the first time about their amazement at what they saw and the powerlessness they felt to protect the leader of their country.

19 KLEIN, EDWARD All Too Human-the Love Story Of Jack And Jackie Kennedy
New York Pocket Books 1996 0671501879 / 9780671501877 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
406 pages, 8 plates, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: Of all the great love stories that have had an impact on our times-Eleanor and Franklin, Winston and Clementine, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor-none has remained as shrouded in secrecy and misunderstanding as that of John and Jacqueline Kennedy. Here, for the first time, their story is told the way it was " always meant to be told-with such depth and amazing detail that it sheds a whole new light on the relationship at the heart of Camelot. For many years, Edward Klein, the former editor in chief of The New York Times Magazine, was a friend of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Drawing on his personal knowledge, major research libraries, private documents and correspondence, FBI files, and more than three hundred interviews, All Too Human is an original and unprecedented work on the Kennedys-a book replete with fresh facts and information, as well as a dramatically new interpretation of the Kennedy marriage.

20 LANE, MARK A citizen's dissent. Mark Lane replies.
New York Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1968 First Edition Hard Cover 
290 pages, cloth, dj, very good. 1st edition. From the dj, 'In A Citizen's Dissent, Mark Lane, author of Rush to Judgement, the provocative critique of the Warren Report, gives an alarming account of how 'the American media act when a matter of historic dimensions occurs and when the government takes the very firm position that that which is demonstrably false is true.' The book is an explosive summation of Lane's efforts to bring his dissenting opinions before the American public and of the incredible difficulties he encountered in questioning the official view of President Kennedy's assassination.'
