Simon & Schuster, 1997. FIRST EDITION. Very good condition, original dust jacket. Quarter-bound in black board over gray boards, with bright silver lettering to the spine. Illustrated with 16 pages of black-and-white photographs. The tail of the spine is a little bumped. A clean and tight copy in a fine, crisp white pictorial dustwrapper that retains the publisher's price of $30.00 in the upper right of the front flap. In the transcriptions of these tapes, "we hear LBJ telling who he thinks really killed JFK, creating the Warren Commission, staking his presidency on a revolutionary civil rights bill, scuttling Robert Kennedy's drive to be his Vice President, using the Tonkin Gulf attack to expand the American beachhead in Southeast Asia, and unveiling his private, tortured early doubts that we could ever win a war in Vietnam."591 pages.
