Summary
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
