Four days in November : the original coverage of the John F. Kennedy

assassination / by the staff of the New York times ; edited by Robert B.

Semple, Jr. ; introduction by Tom Wicker.

The assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas forty years ago will always

remain indelible in the minds of those old enough to recall it. The

youngest elected leader in American history, a charming man leading what

seemed a charmed life, by general consensus a president whose

administration, having survived its early crises, was now at last hitting

its stride, was shot and killed by a sniper firing a mail-order rifle from

the southeast corner of the sixth floor of the Texas School Book

Depository. So great was the shock that time seemed to freeze in the

squinting glare of late-November sun. For four days in November 1963, the

business of the nation ground to a halt. The coverage provided by The New

York Times is still generally considered the most complete of its day.

Almost miraculously, Times reporters, writers, and editors produced 250

columns, or about 200,000 words, on and about the very first day. The

other three days were no less exhaustive. Through the combined efforts of,

among many others, Tom Wicker, James Reston, Max Frankel, Anthony Lewis,

Harrison Salisbury, A. M. Rosenthal, and Arthur Gelb, The Times covered

history as it was happening, from the assassination to the funeral. Here

were the first portraits of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, the earliest

speculation regarding the prospects of Lyndon Johnson's administration,

the immediate reaction from world leaders, and, perhaps most of all, the

pulse of a populace reeling from an event that surpassed both

understanding and belief. This commemorative volume provides a haunting,

firsthand, and detailed chronology of the events that took place in Dallas

and Washington from November 22 to November 25, 1963. Here is history

being recorded in the moment---a recitation not just of facts but of

emotions and reactions as they were being experienced. The clarity of the

writing is matched only by the almost desperate intensity of its occasion.

Getting all the news that's fit to print seemed the only way of keeping

the world from spinning further into chaos The Times's coverage provided

not just information but a sense of balance. Though no one would

ultimately explain to everyone's satisfaction the why, the who, what, and

how were brought with amazing speed and accuracy within our grasp.

Hegemony or survival : America's quest for global dominance / Noam

era of enlightenment -- 4. Dangerous times -- 5. The Iraq connection -- 6.

Dilemmas of dominance -- 7. Cauldron of animosities -- 8. Terrorism and

justice : some useful truisms -- 9. A passing nightmare? -- Notes --


In this book Noam Chomsky offers an analysis of America's pursuit of total

domination and the catastrophic consequences that follow. The United

States is in the process of staking out not just the globe but the last

unarmed spot in our neighborhood-the heavens-as a militarized sphere of

influence. Our earth and its skies are, for the Bush administration, the

final frontiers of imperial control. In Hegemony or survival, Noam Chomsky

investigates how we came to this moment, what kind of peril we find

ourselves in, and why our rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of

our species. Chomsky dissects America's quest for global supremacy,

tracking the U.S. government's aggressive pursuit of policies intended to

achieve "full spectrum dominance" at any cost. He lays out how the various

strands of policy-the militarization of space, the ballistic-missile

defense program, unilateralism, the dismantling of international

agreements, and the response to the Iraqi crisis-cohere in a drive for

hegemony that ultimately threatens our survival. In our era, he argues,

empire is a recipe for an earthly wasteland.
