Descripción del producto
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.

Kurtz also claims that Oswald was with David Ferrie at the LSU campus and that Ferrie spoke out about Kennedy. I think that both of these examples are of importance and that I find it curious that Kurtz was never called before the Warren Commision. His book is one of the best on the assassination itself and is a great tool for studying the assassination.
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.
In this wonderful expose' on this crime, Mr. Kurtz takes the time to look at all subsequent angles and areas that have been questioned ever since the start. Every path and avenue is explored, leaving the reader more informed as to the time and events surrounding this horrific tragedy.
If you are looking for a book that will give you an unbiased and straightforward approach and singularly inform you to all that is needed to form your own theories, then this is the book to get.
Thank you Mr. Kurtz. You are a wonderful professor and historian, and the book is a treasure.
