The Bibliography presented here is not comprehensive; really it's just of list of most of the books those of us at Fair Play have read on the subject, with short descriptions of each.
The presence of a book on this list does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of that particular work. The listings here are alphabetical by title. Accessories After the Fact, by Sylvia Meagher Meagher was In the second wave of Warren. While Accessories is now a little dated. It remains a strong indictment of the Warren Commission and an extremely valuable work.
Act of Treason, by Mark North i. This book argues that Kennedy was killed by the Marcello crime syndicate, and that J.
Edgar Hoover learned of the plot but did nothing to prevent it After the Assassination: This thin volume by a renowned professor proves that academic qualifications are no substitute for knowledge of the documents. A collection of essays on different aspects of the JFK assassination, both pro-conspiracy and con.
The Assassins, by John Kaplan Kaplan's magazine article first appeared in The American Scholar. It is an error-ridden and emotionally suffused attempt by a law professor to attack critics of the Warren Commission findings who he sees as assassins of truth.
Why this article would establish Kaplan, as it did, as a national authority on the Warren Commission is incomprehensible. One of the more controversial books on the assassination. In brief, it is Lifton's thesis that Kennedy's body was hijacked by unknown conspirators between Dallas and Bethesda Naval Hospital on Ndvember 22,and surgically altered so it would support the lone gunman theory.
Betrayal, by Robert D.

He remains something of a hero to Warren diehards. Case Open is difficult to read, being replete with convoluted sentences that sometimes require several passes. Then there is the authors open contempt for his subject, expressed in such memorable phrases as "kissers of official ass like Posner.
A Citizen's Dissent, by Mark Lane A follow-up to Rush to Judgement Lane describes his efforts to publicize his findings in the Kennedy case, in the face of official disdain.
This book is actually an interesting look at conspiracies and those who believe in them, and not an endorsement of any particular mindset; regarding Kennedy, it contains among other things some interesting information on Kerry Thomley. Thomley was Lee Oswald's "Marine buddy" and himself a budding author at the time of the assassination.
He actually wrote a book unpublished inspired in part by Oswald, before the assassination!! Conspiracyby Anthony Summers A comprehensive Btudy of the case, first published in The edition contains a preface written during the publicity leading up to Oliver Stone's JFK; the author is not a Stone booster.
Summers' book is a dispassionate examination of the assassination and its aftermath While by no means conclusive. Conspiracy points to the strong possibility that the crime was planned by renegade CIA types including, perhaps.
William Harvey and carried out by members of organized crime, with Lee Harvey Oswald as designated fall guy. Lots of compelling information on the mysterious "Maurice Bishop.
