As the well-reviewed Through the Lens series continues, Sandler aims the spotlight on John F. Kennedy, one of our most photogenic presidents, providing insight into how JFK used the new medium of television and the advances in color photography to further his ambitious agenda. Sandler's extensive research at the Kennedy Library sheds light on key events in Kennedy's lifetime that combine to provide an intimate portrait of the man as a brother, a father, an activist, and a president. Out in time for the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's inauguration, this will be an essential addition to any Kennedy collection.

Martin W. Sandler has won five Emmy Awards for his writing for television and is the author of more than sixty books, two of which have been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Among Sandler's other books are the six volumes in his award-winning Library of Congress American History Series for Young People, a series which has sold more than 500,000 copies. Mr. Sandler has taught American history at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and at Smith College, and lives in with his wife in Massachusetts.From Booklist:
A subject particularly well suited to the photo-essay format, John F. Kennedy is portrayed here as an intelligent, likable person and a charismatic, effective leader but also as a photogenic subject in an age of changing visual technology. Television helped him win the presidency, and smaller, lighter cameras took the candid photos that endeared the president and his young family to the nation and the world. Sandler presents Kennedys life through a series of double-page spreads in which a full-page photo faces a page carrying a heading, several paragraphs of informative text, a smaller photo, captions, and (in the sections before the presidents death) a quote from Kennedy. Color photos mix with black-and-white ones, which are occasionally tinted. The presentation concludes with descriptions of places to visit, lists of recommended books and websites, and sources of key concepts, photos, and quotes. As in his other Through the Lens titles, Sandler offers an engaging, insightful introduction to his subject through both visuals and text. Grades 6-9. --Carolyn Phelan
