If you enjoyed the chilling reading of In Cold Blood and were at the edge of your seat while watching Oliver Stone?s JFK, you?ll love this investigative look into all the facets of one of the top conspiracies of the twentieth century and beyond. DiEugenio, who has spent decades researching the Kennedy assassination, takes both an analytical and conversational approach to his fascinating exploration of the pivotal historical events and scandals surrounding that day.Twenty years after the first edition of Destiny Betrayed, DiEugenio is back with his ever-expanding investigation into the life and death of JFK. But this is no simple reissue. It is a greatly revised and expanded version of the original book, including updates on all the topics it introduced back in 1992. DiEugenio has used the declassification process of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) to obtain the most current information on topics like the Garrison investigation and Clay Shaw; the newly exposed fallacies of the Warren Commission; U.S.-Cuban policy from 1957 to 1963; Kennedy's withdrawal plan from Vietnam; Kennedy's challenge to the Cold War consensus in 1961, and where those ideas originated; the ARRB medical inquiry demonstrating conspiracy and cover up; and the problems with the investigation of the Kennedy case. DiEugenio?s primary focus is on the Garrison inquiry, the New Orleans aspects of the Kennedy murder investigation, and the revelatory new information that bolsters Garrison?s case and has been withheld from the public.All of this and more is contained in the narrative of this complex crime, with twin focuses on the victim, John F. Kennedy, and the investigator, Jim Garrison.

[Great article by this author on the HSCA and Blakey below.]
Great book, along with Richard James DeSocio's "Rockefellerocracy" and David Talbot's "Brothers" to get a real understanding of what occurred. Should be read along with DeSocio's book, but above all read DeSocio's book! [Loved that Mr. DiEugenio includes Rankin's screwup, where he mentions that Oswald attended language school in Monterey.]

This is one of the best books ever written on the Kennedy assassination. James DiEugenio has also written "Reclaiming Parkland". The library has yet to get a copy, it's just been published. Read both books and you will be much wiser.
