The Justice Integrity Project announces an updated catalog of leading books and major official reports about President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963 and its continuing importance.
The Readers Guide is continuously updated, with special attention to the unique historical event of the 50th anniversary of the Warren Commission published in the fall of 1964.
The Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC) convened a major conference on the Warren Commission anniversary from Sept. 26 to 28, 2014 at the Bethesda Hyatt Regency Hotel. This editor spoke at the conference during three segments, including opening comments on the continuing importance of the JFK murder in understanding current events. The talks drew on my book, Presidential Puppetry, which revealed that President Obama’s advisors feared a “revolt” if he dared prosecute CIA officials for lawbreaking during the Bush administration.
A separate group, the JFK Historical Group, convened a conference also on the topic and on the same dates from Sept. 26 to 28, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Alexandria, VA.
More than two thousand books are estimated to have been published in whole or part on the Kennedy assassination, according to AARC President James H. Lesar, who co-founded the non-profit in 1984.
The most significant of those books as measured by such factors as sales and expert citations are listed below in an appendix, regardless of whether the authors’ point of view criticizes or defends such conventional interpretations as the Warren Commission report. This format follows the original goal of this Readers Guide, which was to provide at the outset a catalog of relevant materials.
This installment below is not meant for casual reading. Instead, it is best regarded as a reference source for readers looking for something specific in terms of a book or major report. Other installments of the Readers Guide cover the most relevant films and other videos, researcher centers, and events. Other installments provide interpretative columns.
