Pulitzer Prize Finalist: “By far the most lucid and compelling account . . . of what probably did happen in Dallas—and what almost certainly did not.” —The New York Times Book Review The Kennedy assassination has reverberated for five decades, with tales of secret plots, multiple killers, and government cabals often overshadowing the event itself. As Gerald Posner writes, “Fifty years after the assassination, the biggest casualty has been the truth.” In this first-ever digital edition of his classic work, updated with a special comment for the fiftieth anniversary, Posner lays to rest all of the convoluted conspiracy theories—concerning the mafia, a second shooter, and the CIA—that have obscured over the decades what really happened in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Drawing from official sources and dozens of interviews, and filled with powerful historical detail, Case Closed is a vivid and straightforward account that stands as one of the most authoritative books on the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Dallas, 22. November 1963 – 12:30 Uhr: Lee Harvey Oswald späht durch das Zielfernrohr seines Gewehrs. John F. Kennedys Kopf erscheint kaum einen Meter entfernt. Oswald weiß, dass er kaum Zeit haben wird. Zwei Schüsse wird er sicher abgeben können – drei, wenn er wirklich schnell ist. Sein Ziel klar vor Augen, atmet er aus und drückt den Abzug. Der erste Schuss trifft den Präsidenten im Nacken. Kennedy sackt leicht zusammen, sein Rückenkorsett, das er wegen seiner Kriegsverletzung dauernd tragen muss, hält ihn aber aufrecht. Beunruhigt wendet Jackie sich ihrem Mann zu. Sie greift nach seiner Schulter und schaut ihm ins Gesicht, um zu sehen, was los ist. Kaum fünf Sekunden sind seit dem ersten Schuss vergangen, da schlägt die zweite Kugel in Kennedys Hinterkopf ein und reißt eine klaffende Wunde. Reflexartig fährt seine Hand hoch zur Stirn, doch ein großer Teil der Schädeldecke ist weggeschleudert worden.

An explosive investigation of Lee Harvey Oswald’s activities in the days leading up to President Kennedy’s murder. Peter Dale Scott has written extensively on the Kennedy assassination and other dark corners of the American political scene. His encyclopedic knowledge enables him to connect the dots among the players, the organizations, and the unacknowledged collusions—the deep politics—of our often-troubled political system. In Oswald, Mexico, and Deep Politics, Scott delivers the most detailed treatment yet of the mysterious sojourn of Lee Harvey Oswald (or someone using his name) to Mexico City in the fall of 1963. Was this trip a key aspect of the framing of Oswald, was it an approved intelligence operation, or was it perhaps both? It is now known that allegations of Communist conspiracy in the wake of the JFK assassination, emanating mostly from Mexico City, caused Lyndon B. Johnson to put together a “blue ribbon commission” to investigate what happened in Dallas. Scott explains through meticulous research and analysis exactly why LBJ would want the Warren Commission to rush to a conclusion, and the far-reaching political ramifications of the commission’s public findings. Scott’s analysis suggests the evidence from Mexico City was part of a frame-up, making Oswald, Mexico, and Deep Politics an essential piece of research and analysis, shedding new light on the Communist conspiracy allegations behind the killing of JFK. “No scholar knows more about the shadowy workings of American power than Scott.” —David Talbot, founder of Salon and author of Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years

Verschwörungstheorien genießen in der Bevölkerung große Popularität. In den Wissenschaften haben sie hingegen einen eher schlechten Ruf – den Leitmedien gelten sie als Ausdruck überzogenen politischen Misstrauens oder gar kollektiver Paranoia. Der vorliegende Band erklärt, wie diese unterschiedliche Bewertung zustande kommt und woraus der anhaltende Erfolg von Verschwörungstheorien in der Öffentlichkeit resultiert. Mittels empirischer Fallstudien, medienwissenschaftlicher Rekonstruktionen und theoretischer Reflexionen wagt der Band den Versuch einer soziologischen Ehrenrettung des konspirologischen Gegenwartsdenkens.

A groundbreaking, explosive account of the Kennedy assassination that will rewrite the history of the 20th century's most controversial murder investigation The questions have haunted our nation for half a century: Was the President killed by a single gunman? Was Lee Harvey Oswald part of a conspiracy? Did the Warren Commission discover the whole truth of what happened on November 22, 1963? Philip Shenon, a veteran investigative journalist who spent most of his career at The New York Times, finally provides many of the answers. Though A Cruel and Shocking Act began as Shenon's attempt to write the first insider's history of the Warren Commission, it quickly became something much larger and more important when he discovered startling information that was withheld from the Warren Commission by the CIA, FBI and others in power in Washington. Shenon shows how the commission's ten-month investigation was doomed to fail because the man leading it – Chief Justice Earl Warren – was more committed to protecting the Kennedy family than getting to the full truth about what happened on that tragic day. A taut, page-turning narrative, Shenon's book features some of the most compelling figures of the twentieth century—Bobby Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, Chief Justice Warren, CIA spymasters Allen Dulles and Richard Helms, as well as the CIA's treacherous "molehunter," James Jesus Angleton. Based on hundreds of interviews and unprecedented access to the surviving commission staffers and many other key players, Philip Shenon's authoritative, scrupulously researched book will forever change the way we think about the Kennedy assassination and about the deeply flawed investigation that followed.

An original and illuminating narrative revealing John F. Kennedy's lasting influence on America, by the acclaimed political analyst Larry J. Sabato. John F. Kennedy died almost half a century ago-yet because of his extraordinary promise and untimely death, his star still resonates strongly. On the anniversary of his assassination, celebrated political scientist and analyst Larry J. Sabato-himself a teenager in the early 1960s and inspired by JFK and his presidency-explores the fascinating and powerful influence he has had over five decades on the media, the general public, and especially on each of his nine presidential successors. A recent Gallup poll gave JFK the highest job approval rating of any of those successors, and millions remain captivated by his one thousand days in the White House. For all of them, and for those who feel he would not be judged so highly if he hadn't died tragically in office, The Kennedy Half-Century will be particularly revealing. Sabato reexamines JFK's assassination using heretofore unseen information to which he has had unique access, then documents the extraordinary effect the assassination has had on Americans of every modern generation through the most extensive survey ever undertaken on the public's view of a historical figure. The full and fascinating results, gathered by the accomplished pollsters Peter Hart and Geoff Garin, paint a compelling portrait of the country a half-century after the epochal killing. Just as significantly, Sabato shows how JFK's presidency has strongly influenced the policies and decisions-often in surprising ways-of every president since. Among the hundreds of books devoted to JFK, The Kennedy Half-Century stands apart for its rich insight and original perspective. Anyone who reads it will appreciate in new ways the profound impact JFK's short presidency has had on our national psyche.
