Drawing on extensive new research, this is the definitive account of John F. Kennedy's decision to send Americans to the Moon and the birth of the Apollo program. During his time in the White House, Kennedy actively involved himself in space policy, weighing its implications for domestic and international politics while leading the country through the Cold War. Author John Logsdon traces the evolution of JFK's thinking and policies, including his hope of collaborating, rather than competing, with the Soviet Union - a possibility that was soon abandoned following his assassination. Filled with accounts of political maneuvering and new insights, this is an illuminating look at how one of the most challenging endeavors in American history was made reality.
