TV Shapes Presidential Politics in the Kennedy-Nixon Debates: 4D An Augmented Reading Experience

On-point historical photographs combined with strong narration bring the story of the Nixon-Kennedy presidential debates to life. TV was new in those days, and these were both the first debates ever held between two presidential candidates and the first to be televised. About 60 million people tuned into the first debate, or more than 1/4 of the country's population. Readers will learn just how much effect seeing the debates had on the results of the election and how they changed presidential campaigning forevermore. Readers will understand the significance behind this event through text and clips of the event itself via the Capstone 4D augmented reality app.

Booklist - Ilene Cooper

"STARRED REVIEW! Television has changed the way we experience events that will become important pieces of history. . . .The history and expansion of presidential debates, the problems surrounding debates and FCC laws, and pivotal debate moments are all looked at with a keen eye. Sidebars offer space for sometimes surprising information. . . .The oversize format and strong photo choices add to the book's considerable appeal." - Booklist
