Rush to Judgment is Mark Lane’s seminal work on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This groundbreaking number one bestseller opened the eyes of the people of the United States to the possibility that their government was involved in a cover-up of monumental proportions. In his mesmerizing book Lane explores the Warren Report’s conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Lane’s exhaustive investigation provides a roadmap to the body of evidence about the assassination. By interviewing witnesses throughout the country, comparing each of the Report’s conclusions with its own corresponding evidence, and searching through the 26 volumes of evidence the President’s Commission collected and thousands of documents found only in the National Archive in Washington, DC., Lane truthfully investigates the assassination. Meticulously detailed, with over 4,000 citations, yet immensely compelling, Rush to Judgment set forth cataclysmic ripples through the fabric of our nation. This work, still unparalleled after nearly 50 years and scores of other explorations, is where it all began. No serious study of this event is complete without it.
