Reseña del editor

Thirty years after the tragic event, the question "Who killed President Kennedy?" is today as troubling as ever. In this new edition of his provocative book, Michael Kurtz brings all the skills and objectivity of the professional historian to bear on the issues raised by the assassination investigations that followed, and the various conspiracy theories that have challenged the official conclusions about what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Addressing developments since the book's initial publication in 1982, Kurtz provides a new introduction and updated bibliography. He discusses the publicity and controversy surrounding Oliver Stone's film JFK, the new books and television programs that have dealt with the different conspiracy theories, new information about the possible role of organized crime in the assassination, and certain materials from the Kennedy autopsy that have only recently come to light. With its depth of research, rigorously objective sifting of evidence, and incisive critique of official investigative bias, Crime of the Century remains book of singular importance - not only to students of the Kennedy assassination but to scholars of government response to political violence in general.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A case for innocence of Lee Oswald. 23 de octubre de 2013
Por Northshore_Paul - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Professor Kurtz does not weave a tale full of unsubstantiated anecdotal evidence but all his facts are just that, facts substantiated by an extensive bibliography and footnotes. This is the kind of book on the subject you would expect to have been written by a historian who has researched the topic from the beginning. I have always questioned the Warren Commission and the party line that was presented to us, that Lee Oswald was the sole gunman. After reading Prof. Kurtz's account I now know why a majority of Americans questioned the Warren Commission findings. His book has planted a seed for me to continue to read as much on the subject as I can. He lays the case out in an easy to follow manner that makes it easy for someone who has not read very much on the subject. Now as we approach the fiftieth anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination we hear occasional news stories and as the date gets closer the stories will increase. I cringe every time a journalist refers to Lee Oswald as the assassin and not the alleged assassin. After reading Prof. Kurtz's work you will see how no court could have found him guilty, the evidence is just not there.

Historian Kurtz was a student at Louisiana State University in New Orleans during the 1962-63 school year, and claims to have seen Guy Banister and Oswald together on two different occasions. I have no reason to doubt this story. Crime of the Century gives a pretty good summary of the problems with the official solution presented by the Warren Commission, and then decides that the only conspiracy that makes sense is one that blames Castro.

Anyone who has studied this subject very deeply knows that this is precisely what the plotters WANTED everyone to think by choosing Oswald as the patsy. This was the point of the Oswald impersonator in Mexico City, the fake witnesses (Cuban exiles, CIA assets, Nicaraguan intelligence, assets in Franco's Spain) who came forward after the assassination to claim they saw Oswald meeting with Castro agents. The hope was that the American public would blame Castro, and demand an invasion to oust him. Instead, LBJ, Hoover, the Warren Commission and the mainstream media turned to the lone-nut conclusion to avoid what could have been World War III.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Possibly the best book on the JFK assassination 13 de diciembre de 2007
Por Lee Harvey Oswald - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
When I was at University back in 1988, I first heard that there was an alternative to the official story that Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy (source: The Kentucky Fried Movie). As an immigrant, this was news to me, and it absolutely fascinated me. I headed for the library to read more, and amongst some rather dubious books, I discovered this gem. As a mathematician, my instinct was to try to find the out the truth, rather than confirm my own theories. This was the only book I could find where the author seemed to share my objective. I recall he presented all the facts he could find, even ones that may have supported the lone gunman theory, and debunked some ludicrous conspiracy theories as well. (I think that perhaps some of those really off the wall JFK conspiracy theories are hatched by the lone gunman support group to discredit conspiracy theorists in general.)

So after reading this book, you have all the information you need to see that Lee Harvey Oswald couldn't have been the lone gunman, and that the government and media didn't want you to know that. It won't tell you who killed JFK, you'll have to read "Plausible Denial" by Mark Lane to find that out, another excellent book based wholly on facts. OK, it was the CIA. I'm just waiting for a book that will tell me why.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas From a Real Participant & Witness, Not an "Expert or Scholar" 22 de diciembre de 2012
Por Oswaldo F. Hernández-Campos - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I read this book, which I think is an excellent historical document, many years ago. The assassination of President Kennedy was indeed the result of a conspiracy, but not one involving the CIA. As a former Intelligence Officer of the Cuban Rebel Army (Castro's Army), and later a member and veteran of the 2506 Assault Brigade (CIA-trained and directed Bay of Pigs attack force), I believe that this was the first book that truly attempted to throw some light on the claims that were being made at the time by a group of followers of a New York attorney named Mark Lane, known for his radical Leftist viewpoints, who actually began, without any real evidence, and not long after the crime itself, what has probably been the most massive disinformation campaign that America has ever experienced. This disinformation campaign, or coverup, was apparently initiated by President Lyndon B. Johnson, in order to avoid a "confrontation" with Cuba and the Soviet Union, which together with Giancana's Mafia Family, prepared the scenario. Besides Lee Harvey Oswald, there was one, or perhaps even a third sniper, who will never say anything about the matter, nor will their names ever be known, for they were members of Communist Cuba's Intelligence and Repression Apparatus. Anyone truly interested in approaching the ultimate truth, should also read the books titled, "The Jack Ruby Conspiracy," and "The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald". The American people should be fully aware that the Giancana Mafia Family was actually very grateful to Fidel Castro, for Castro returned to them all the funds that they had deposited in Cuban banks, and which also released Family members Santos Trafficante and Meyer Lansky, who were being held in a Cuban prison. Needless to say, U.S. Federal authorities are more than fully aware of what I am stating.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A good, scholarly look into JFK's assassination 2 de abril de 2002
Por Conaire Mor - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
Drawing upon numerous books, scholarly articles, newspapers, magazine articles, and the few publically released primary documents, Dr. Kurtz does an excellent job analyzing the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He has his own theory as to who killed President Kennedy, but he points out that there is NOT ENOUGH evidence to say EXACTLY who masterminded and carried out the assassination. He tells the readers that there was DEFINITELY a conspiracy to kill President Kennedy. This book is a good starting point for people who want to learn about the Kennedy assassination. Kurtz's endnotes and bibliography will point serious Kennedy assassination students to other sources on this subject.
