Fifty years after John F. Kennedy's presidency, his family has released First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's taped interviews with historian and White House advisor Arthur Schlesinger. A book, introduced by daughter Caroline, and eight CD's are already Number One on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The tapes reveal a woman deeper and more complex than the Queen-of-Camelot image she promoted herself. We hear excerpts and get some commentary from Michael Kazin, Professor of History at Georgetown University and author of American Dreamers: How the Left Changed a Nation.
