American Decision Making During the Cuban Missile Crisis

This dissertation examines the deliberations of the American government during the Cuban missile crisis of October 1962. Much has been written on this subject by those involved, either within the decision making process, or on the periphery - for instance, McGeorge Bundy, Abram Chayess, Raymond Garthoff, Ray Cline, and Robert Kennedy. However, none of these totally agree on what happened.

About Kevin Mahoney

Kevin Mahoney is the editor of, the Founder and Publisher of Punked Books, and the author of the novel A Fame of Two Halves.

I was born in Slough in 1972, and where I went to Slough Grammar School (although it was called Upton Grammar then). I attended Anglia Polytechnic University in Cambridge for three glorious years (during which the University changed name twice - from AHEC, AP, to APU), where I was a member of Cambridge Student TV and a founding member of the Cambridge Media Group. Returning to Slough, I worked for Ottakars booksellers and became an editorial assistant on Story Cellar magazine. From 1995 to 1997, I attended Thames Valley University (which, unusually, has not changed its name), and was awarded an MA on their excellent Cultural Studies course. In 1998, I began a long stint of working for, where I won the Amazonian Award in 2000, and where I edited their internal newsletter Amazone. In 2002, my essay on Masculinity in Dune, Spartacus, and Lawrence of Arabia was studied at the University of California. I left Amazon in 2005, and now live in Ealing with wife Michelle. My main preoccupation is editing the literary review magazine, Authortrek, portions of which have been reprinted in the US edition of Joanne Harris's Sleep, Pale Sister, and quotations from the site were used on the cover to plug Neal Asher's debut novel, Gridlinked. I also wrote a reading guide for the US edition of Joanne Harris’ novel Gentlemen & Players. I have performed poetry at London's Poetry Cafe, and at the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith. For 3 years, I was the Web Content Manager for the Society of Young Publishers.
