Overview

Then Everything Changed: Stunning Alternate Histories of American Politics: JFK, RFK, Carter, Ford, Reaga n by Jeff Greenfield

The New York Times bestseller from Jeff Greenfield, the renowned CBS News senior political correspondent and veteran of CNN and ABC news, offering an alternative history of America. These things are true: * In December 1960, a suicide bomber paused when he saw the young President-elect John F. Kennedy's family come to the door to wave good-bye.... * In June 1968, Robert F. Kennedy declared victory in California, and then instead of heading to another ballroom, as intended, was hustled off through the kitchen.... * In October 1976, President Ford made a critical gaffe in a debate against Jimmy Carter, turning the tide in an election that had been rapidly narrowing. But what if they had gone the other way? In three narratives based on memoirs, oral histories, fresh reporting with key participants, and his own knowledge of the principal players, Jeff Greenfield explores how accidents of fate could have altered the course of history. The scenarios that Greenfield depicts are startlingly realistic, rich in detail, shocking in their projections, but always deeply, remarkably plausible.

A great read and a lot of fun for anyone who loves the inside politics side. Each situation is plausible, entertaining and even funny.

The scenarios played out in the book about what would have happened had certain facts surrounding some historical moments in modern American history changed only slightly, will prompt discussion and debate. The fact that the author's theories surround modern presidents and subsequent actions, history we are all familiar with, make this book a basis for fun debate and discussion. Make sure somebody that shares an interest in contemporary times reads it , because that will surely begin the debate.

If you are into modern history and politics, this is a must read. It is well written and has lots of historical and political plots and turns that made me really think about how the world would have have been different if the three events in the book really happened. While it full of facts and information, Jeff Greenfield did a great job of making it easy to read and follow. Would love to read a second book on three different events

Greenfield's book has tales of excellently plausible alternate history.  This is particularly true when it comes to a Robert Kennedy campaign and presidency. This is book is definitely worth checking out.
