America has no royal family, but in the earliest 1960s, the White House was graced with the presence of a couple so attractive, so vibrant and so glamorous that the eminent historian Theodore H. White, writing in LIFE, likened the situation to Camelot. And if Jack Kennedy was our King Arthur, then Jackie was our queen. On these pages, that era comes alive again, as do the earlier and later chapters of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis's remarkable, captivating story. LIFE long enjoyed a special relationship with this woman--she first appeared on the magazine's cover in 1953 as the fiancee of a charismatic young senator from Massachesetts, beginning a streak that would stretch to 18 covers in all--and this book is filled with warm, intimate images from our archives. We watch her children grow in these pages, and we smile. We revisit the tragedies that she endured, and we sympathize anew. Jackie's was an altogether amazing American life. LIFE was there to chronicle it at the time and is there to recapture it in this special commemorative book. In this volume, Jackie lives on.

Five decades after President John F. Kennedy opened a soaring chapter in American life by calling for a New Frontier, TIME explores the life and legacy of an inspiring leader whose presidency was cut short by an assassin's bullet. TIME takes the full measure of Kennedy's life and achievements, celebrates his lasting impact on the American scene and commemorates, indelibly, the bygone days of the early 1960s. John F. Kennedy played many roles in his all-too-short life. He was a playboy who became a war hero, an athlete who fought against lifelong fragile health, an heir to riches who worked for the less fortunate. JFK was a visionary President who ignited the dreams of a generation: he founded the Peace Corps, challenged Americans to fly to the moon, supported the Civil Rights movement and faced down the Soviets in the Cuban Missile Crisis. With First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, he presided over a White House that became the center of the nation's artistic, cultural and intellectual life. From Boston to the South Pacific, Hyannis Port to Washington, Camelot to Dallas, join TIME to reconsider the myths, the magic and the legacy of JFK. The book features new interviews with Kennedy's friends, family and colleagues; seldom-seen photos from the archives of TIME and LIFE; and a special introduction by sister-in-law Ethel Kennedy.

Kennedy’s election as president of the United States, this book is a revealing and intimate portrait of a leader, husband, and father as seen through the lens of Cecil Stoughton, the first official White House photographer.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the groundbreaking backstairs look at the White House, The Residence, comes an intimate, news-making look at the true modern power brokers at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: the First Ladies, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama and Melania Trump. One of the most underestimated—and challenging—positions in the world, the First Lady of the United States must be many things: an inspiring leader with a forward-thinking agenda of her own; a savvy politician, skilled at navigating the treacherous rapids of Washington; a wife and mother operating under constant scrutiny; and an able CEO responsible for the smooth operation of countless services and special events at the White House. Now, as she did in her smash #1 bestseller The Residence, former White House correspondent Kate Andersen Brower draws on a wide array of untapped, candid sources—from residence staff and social secretaries to friends and political advisers—to tell the stories of the ten remarkable women who have defined that role since 1960. Brower offers new insights into this privileged group of remarkable women, including Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Patricia Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama. The stories she shares range from the heartwarming to the shocking and tragic, exploring everything from the first ladies’ political crusades to their rivalries with Washington figures; from their friendships with other first ladies to their public and private relationships with their husbands. She also offers insight as to what Melania Trump might hope to accomplish as First Lady. Candid and illuminating, this first group biography of the modern first ladies provides a revealing look at life upstairs and downstairs at the world’s most powerful address.

Over the years there have been many books published about the Kennedy family, individually and collectively. But only this book provides a powerful and detailed look at the complex relationships shared between the three women who were not born Kennedy but who married into the family: Jackie Bouvier, Ethel Skakel, and Joan Bennett. For each of the Kennedy wives, the Camelot years provided an entirely different experience of life lessons. These were the years when Jackie's dreams became reality, but at a hefty price. For Ethel, these were years of frustration where her dreams of being First Lady were dashed and she sank into a deep depression. For Joan, her years as a Kennedy wife were the most confusing of her life, and she is now a recovering alcoholic. This fascinating story is set against a panorama of explosive American history, as the women cope with Jack's and Bobby's alleged affairs with Marilyn Monroe, their tragic assassinations, and other tragedies and scandals. Whether dealing with their husbands' blatant infidelities, stumping for their many political campaigns, touring the world to promote their family's legacy or raising their children, the Kennedy wives did it all with grace, style, and dignity. In the end, JACKIE, ETHEL, JOAN is a story of redemption and great courage.
