9781250070258: Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: The Untold Story

"An intimate and revealing look at one of the twentieth century's most remarkable―and misunderstood women." ―KIRKUS REVIEWS

Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onasis: The Untold Story is the first book to document Jackie's thirty-one-year struggle with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here is the woman as she has never been seen before. Barbara Leaming explores the seemingly magical world of Jackie's youth, her fairy-tale marriage to a wealthy and handsome senator and presidential candidate and her astonishing transformation into a deft political wife and unique First Lady. This spirited young woman's rejection of the idea of a "safe marriage" as the wife of some socially prominent but utterly predictable man led her to JFK and, in time, international fame. But the trauma of her husband's murder would damage her far more than has been known. Until now.

While the life of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis has been examined and scrutinized countless times, it is only now that we can truly understand the woman behind the facade, the untold story of this iconic woman.

From the Author :

PTSD & JACKIE KENNEDY by Barbara Leaming

Our country is in the midst of a national crisis over PTSD. Great numbers of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have returned suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.  Yet our society still understands very little about what PTSD is and the suffering it causes to those who live with it.  Jackie Kennedy's experience of PTSD is at the heart of my new biography, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: The Untold Story.  It is the reason I decided to write the book.

The story of Jackie's 31 year struggle with PTSD that I was able to detail and document--much of it seen from Jackie's own perspective, often in her own heartbreaking words--affords us an important chance to see up close and in vivid detail just what PTSD means to someone who has had a traumatic experience.  It is also in a real sense a remarkable story of survival, the story of someone fighting for her sanity when no one understood what was wrong, when she was repeatedly under assault by society, and when the trauma was repeated.  

Importantly, this is also a story which puts a name and face we know to the overwhelming reality of the suffering of someone afflicted with post-traumatic stress disorder.  Moreover, her trauma was also a national trauma, a trauma we all witnessed--the assassination of JFK in which Jackie was soaked in her husband's blood and brains.

Jackie Kennedy spent decades in the public eye, but it now becomes frighteningly clear how little we understood of what we saw.  It is time to set the record straight. Jackie's story is both important history and a history for our time.

Of all the books I've written none has meant more to me in emotional terms and none has made me feel more acutely the responsibility I have in writing it--a responsibility not just to my subject herself but to those who are suffering from PTSD.

Description du livre Griffin Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. For almost six decades, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis has fascinated people worldwide. The subject of numerous books and thousands of articles, her life has probably been documented in millions of words. And yet, there has always remained something mysterious, something private about this very public woman. With extraordinary skill and great sensitivity, Barbara Learning explores the seemingly magical world of Jackie s youth, her fairy-tale marriage to a wealthy and handsome Senator and Presidential candidate and her astonishing transformation into a deft political wife and unique First Lady. This spirited young woman s rejection of the idea of a safe marriage as the wife of some socially prominent but utterly predictable man led her to JFK and international fame. But the trauma of her husband s murder, which left her literally soaked in blood and brains, would damage her far more than has been known. Until now. This is the first book to document Jackie s brutal, lonely and valiant thirty one year struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In heartrending detail, we witness a struggle that unfolded at times before our own eyes, but which we failed to understand. While the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis has been examined and scrutinized countless times, it is only now that we can truly discover the woman behind the facade, the untold story of this iconic woman.
