From the Inside Flap:

Did St. Brendan the Navigator discover America, centuries beforeColumbus? Was Aaron Burr a traitor? Who was Watergate’s DeepThroat? In this encore to Unsolved Mysteries of American History,Paul Aron offers crisp, clear-eyed analyses of still more puzzlesthat perplex American historians. Drawing on the latest research,he marshals the evidence on thirty enduring historical riddles,including:

  • Did Lincoln provoke the attack on Fort Sumter?
  • Who was Emily Dickinson’s "Master"–the man (orwoman) who inspired her love poems?
  • Why did Custer attack, ignoring orders to wait forreinforcements?
  • What sank the Lusitania–and pushed the United States toenter World War I?
  • Did Shoeless Joe Jackson throw the 1919 World Series?
  • Why didn’t the Allies bomb Auschwitz?
  • Who was to blame for the Bay of Pigs fiasco?
  • What has J. D. Salinger written since he stoppedpublishing?
  • Did James Earl Ray really kill Martin Luther King Jr.?
  • Were POWs left behind in Vietnam?
  • Who killed Jimmy Hoffa?
  • Was O. J. Simpson guilty?

For each mystery, Aron lays out the facts, deftly summarizingcompeting theories, and judiciously weighing the evidence. Completewith extensive suggestions for further reading, his book is a funway to explore some of America’s most intriguing historicalconundrums–and a fascinating read from first page tolast.
