Item Description...
An astonishing new examination of the Kennedy assassination and its meaning today for the struggle for peace. James Douglass lays out the journey that led JFK in the course of three years from his position as a traditional ColdWarrior to his determination to break with the logic of the Cold War and lead the world in an entirely different direction. This sequence of steps led his adversaries in the military and intelligence establishment to view him as a virtual traitor who had to be eliminated. Douglass's book has all the elements of a political thriller. But the stakes couldn't be higher. Only by understanding the truth behind the murder of JFK can we grasp his vision and assume the urgent struggle for peace today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
New light  Dec 20, 2008
Having studied the Kennedy assassination for many years, and also having been a young man who was an ardent follower of JFK (even joining the Peace Corps), I found this work a renewing ray of light. By presenting this work, the author has created a perspective prism that allows the reader to view JFK's presidency and murder in completely new terms. Kennedy's back channel communications with Khrushckev and Castro bring into fine focus many of the unaswereed questions about motive for the assassination in Dallas. This work dovetails with Peter Dale Scott's "Deep Politics and the Death of JFK" to present conclusions that it was not an external system that created the murder of a leader who threatened the status quo of the cold war, but diverse elements from within and without the political system. Any serious student of the JFK's preidency and assassination would be well served by reading this book. Personally, it reiterated for me my respect and affection for a man who tried to save the world from nuclear destruction and the withering evils of the cold war, and was sacrificed for his efforts.
Amazing Truth   Dec 6, 2008
Exceptionally well documented, current and up to date including references to the latest declassified information. Douglass backs up his views with almost 100 pages of references. Very detailed reading, no photos, not for skimmers. But for real historians, who are facinated by this tremendously decisive time in history, this is your book. Give one to anyone who still believes Oswald was the lone gunnman, if there are still any such fools remaining.
HOGWASH!  Nov 29, 2008
Give me a break. I think it is time folks to grow up, and face the truth. JFK deservedly had enemies, but none of them were helping Oswald when he shot JFK on November 22, 1963. Open your mind, and read Case Closed by Gerald Posner for the truth.
Let's speak the unspeakable  Nov 25, 2008
JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters
It can be torture to speak up and not be heard. James Douglass has gone through that for some 50 years, thinking that perhaps he himself was a conspiracy nut. This book will disabuse you of that compulsive tendency. Kennedy came to Korea while I was there in 1963, when anti-Communism was dogma for many Catholics. He might have died that day too: and I have imagined how it could have happened, imagining input from the Vatican, and passionate devotion to the Virgin Mary from Fatima. Look up my own new novel if you like: Douglass makes it more plausible than ever: a US Army general, a clerical enthusiast, and a hundred Jesuits. (Douglass liked it, and together we feel the torture is over at last.)
Best Book I've Read in 10 years  Nov 24, 2008
Masterful, deep, and brilliant. When you add this great book to Peter Dale Scott's book "Deep Politics and the Death of JFK," you get an understanding of the period that is profound, nuanced, and remarkably well documented. Because of the world-changing salience of these events -- and the fundamental nature of the darker processes that drove them -- such an understanding brings readers to an unsettlingly high level of sophistication about matters where ignorance is an anxious bliss, and enlightenment is a mournful search for hope. A wonderful and inspired book.
