Jack Ruby( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nearly forty years ago, all of America was watching as Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused killer of John F. Kennedy, was being transferred to a new jail. Suddenly, a man stepped from the crowd of spectators and shot him, sending Oswald and his secrets to the grave and launching decades of speculation. Jack Ruby, a Texas nightclub owner, claimed his act was a spur-of-the-moment decision--that he saw an opportunity to avenge the death of his president and acted on it. As BIOGRAPHY details, there are many who question his version of the events, but perhaps the answer lies in looking at Ruby's life before he stepped into the spotlight. Drawing on the memories of those who knew him best, including his brother Earl, this illuminating profile follows the future killer from his rough-and-tumble Chicago childhood to Dallas, and those close to the case examine his actions - and possible motivations - on that fateful day."--Publisher's website

It was the year that brought us the Iranian hostage crisis and Three Mile Island, The Village People and Bo Derek starred in the movie '10'. Blends light-hearted nostalgia with in-depth commentary from the figures at the heart of 1979's biggest stories. See how the latest scion of one of America's great political dynasties watched his dream of the Presidency evaporate on national television; follow the improbable run of the Pittsburgh Pirates to the World Series, and learn of the behind-the-scenes negotiations with the revolutionary government headed by Ayatollah Khomeini
