Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, Kent State Tragedy (American Moments) – School Library Journal

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. . . . The writing style is clear. . .and the information is unbiased and accurate. . . . These volumes have excellent leading and numerous black-and-white and color photos placed with the appropriate text. There is little available for this audience on the Kent State tragedy, making this volume a sound purchase.
