After helping lead street demonstrations against the war at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention, where he was beaten, gassed and arrested twice, Hayden was indicted in 1969 with seven others on conspiracy and incitement charges.

James Douglass is the author of a powerful and meticulously documented new book that brings to the fore the central focus of Kennedy's presidency. This focus was his determination to pursue Peace, with Khrushchev, Castro and in Vietnam and he stood isolated in the Security State in which he operated. It is a focus that has been obscured by official histories and only now can be fully told. It is this focus that ultimately cost him his life by the agencies within the very government he was president of.
