Coming to Terms with John F. Kennedy offers a nuanced assessment of the thirty-fifth president, whose legacy and impact people continue to debate to this day.  Knott examines Kennedy through the lens of five critical issues:  his interpretation of presidential power, his approach to civil rights, and his foreign policy toward Cuba, the Soviet Union, and Vietnam. 

Knott also explores JFK’s Assassination and the evolving interpretations of his presidency, both highly politicized subject matters.  What emerges is a president as complex as the author’s shifting views about him. 

Wine and hors d’oeuvres reception to follow.  Cost $35/person. 


Dr. Knott is currently Professor of American History and Government at Ashland University and an Emeritus Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College. He has authored or co-authored a number of books on the American presidency, the early republic and American foreign policy. He offers a nuanced assessment of John F. Kennedy, whose legacy people continue to debate to this day.
