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.

HASH(0xa03a7a44) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Kurtz' claim to have seen Oswald and Banister 16 de abril de 1998
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I feel that if Kurtz did see Oswald and Banister together that it would mean some relationship existed contrary to the Warren Commisions' findings.
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.

HASH(0xa03a7ea0) 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.

HASH(0xa03a44a4) 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.

HASH(0xa053b264) de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Student's Review 28 de noviembre de 2003
Por S. Howell - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Kurtz as one of my Pre-Law professors, and like his teaching, this book is precise, informative and exact.
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.

HASH(0xa03bc57c) 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.
