Synopses & Reviews
Finely written and meticulously documented, this book describes how—very early on—a small group of ordinary citizens began extraordinary efforts to demonstrate that the JFK assassination could not have happened the way the government said it did. In time, their efforts had an enormous impact on public opinion, but this account concentrates on the months before the controversy caught fire, when people with skeptical viewpoints still saw themselves as lone voices. Material seldom seen by the public includes a suppressed photograph of the grassy knoll, an unpublished 1964 interview with an eyewitness, the earliest mention of the "magic bullet," and an analysis of the commotion surrounding New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison's charge that anti-Castro CIA operatives were involved.
"Kelin shows us how a small band of average Americans, through relentless dedication, perseverance, and a tireless pursuit of truth, permanently altered the consciousness of a nation." —James DiEugenio, author, Destiny Betrayed
"In his fine account of this endeavor by [a] tiny band of researchers, [Kelin] preserves that which would otherwise have been lost forever." —Vincent J. Salandria, author, False Mystery: Essays on the Assassination of JFK
