Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A tour of key historic sites in America where incidents of political violence have occurred reveals lesser-known points of interest pertaining to each and shares information about how history has been shaped by popular culture and tourism. By the author of The Partly Cloudy Patriot.


Review:

"[W]acky, weirdly enthralling....This is history at its most morbid and most fascinating." (starred review)

Publishers Weekly, 04/04/2005

Review:

"[A] learned, engagingly discursive, funny, sometimes even jolly ramble--literally--through the landscape of American presidential assassinations....Vowell makes an excellent traveling companion, what with her rare combination of erudition and cheek....[T]his book is an often astounding compendium of forgotten history and trivia."

Bruce Handy, New York Times Book Review, 05/08/2005

Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating

Book Description: Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 216 x 135 mm. Brand New Book. Transporting us from Buffalo to Alaska, Washington to Key West, Vowell has crafted a narrative that is much more than a historical travelogue - it is the disturbing and mesmerising story of how American death has been manipulated by popular culture, including film, literature, and - the author s favourite - historical tourism. Skilfully belying the undercurrents of loss and violence that course through her journey, Vowell injects a range of lighter detours along the way, including mummies, show tunes, mean-spirited totem poles, a nineteenth-century biblical sex cult - and exactly how Lincoln s Republican Party became Bush s Republican Party. Assassination Vacation is a fascinating, informative, and richly entertaining look at the myriad ways in which political assassinations have altered and shaped our nation s history.
