Take a look at this excerpt from Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis's Dallas 1963. This short piece tells the story of the welcome that LBJ and Ladybird Johnson received when they made a campaign stop in Dallas shortly before Election Day in 1960.
From what little I know about Dallas 1963 I get the impression that the book is primarily, if not exclusively, about the political mood in Dallas in the years leading up to the Kennedy assassination, and thus isn't really about the assassination itself. I could be wrong about this, and I'll be happy to correct myself after I've had a chance to read the book.
I'm not blogging about politics much these days, but since I've lived in The Metroplex for a big portion of my life, I should make an exception to my current policy and read Dallas 1963. Then I can blog more helpfully about the book.
In the meantime, take a look at this video posted by one of the authors. It should give you a better idea of the book's contents.
Despite the fact that the book is a work of history, it seems very timely to me. I'm looking forward to reading it.
