Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Both Robert F. Kennedy's assassination and the Kent State tragedy are firmly set in the history of the Vietnam era. The antiwar movement informed both Kennedy's campaign and the shootings at the Ohio university. Koestler-Grack does a workmanlike job of describing each event and setting it in the context of the times. In the first book, six short chapters include a discussion of the assassination itself, a brief biography of Kennedy and his ill-fated presidential campaign, the arrest of the assassin, and the way in which the United States was changed by his death. The writing style is clear, if dry, and the information is unbiased and accurate. The same is true of the second title. The author discusses the National Guard shooting of 13 students (four fatally), the antiwar movement, the previous two days of student riots, the buildup to the shooting, and the court cases that resulted. These volumes have excellent leading and numerous black-and-white and color photos placed with the appropriate text. Andrew Santella's The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy (Children's Press, 1998; o.p.) is aimed at a slightly younger audience. There is little available for this audience on the Kent State tragedy, making this volume a sound purchase.-Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
