'Rising Star, Setting Sun: Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and the Presidential Transition that changed America' by John T. Shaw.

Rising Star, Setting Sun... focuses on the intense ten-week transition between JFK’s electoral victory and his inauguration on January 20, 1961. In just over two months, America would transition into a new age, and nowhere was it more marked that in the generational and personal difference between these two men and their dueling visions for the country they led. The former general espoused frugality, prudence, and stewardship. The young political wünderkid embodied dramatic themes and sweeping social change.
