9780916727321: Praise from a Future Generation: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy and the First Generation Critics of the Warren Report

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 Material seldom seen by the public includes a suppressed photograph of the grassy knoll, an unpublished 1964 interview with an eyewitness, the earliest mention of the "magic bullet," and an analysis of the commotion surrounding New Orleans district attorney Jim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.

About the Author:

John Kelin is the editor of False Mystery: Essays on the Assassination of JFK. He lives in Louisville, Colorado.

From Publishers Weekly:

For more than 40 years, a small band of self-anointed investigators have made a cottage industry out of critiquing the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of JFK and postulating elaborate theories associated with that tragedy. Kelin—one of the second generation of critics and the founder of the JFK assassination Web magazine Fair Play—pays homage to the first generation who, unlike craven mainstream historians, he says, refused to buckle under the most subversive lies ever told the American people. Kelin explores in detail the work of a parade of investigators, including prosecutor Jim Garrison (immortalized in Oliver Stone's controversial film JFK); Rush to Judgment author Mark Lane; smalltown newspaper editor Penn Jones Jr. (who made a specialty of investigating the strange deaths of assassination witnesses over the course of several decades), and poultry farmer and Whitewash author Harold Weisberg. The book retreads the familiar territory of the Zapruder film and the grassy knoll and concludes with this year's revelation of the existence of another film of the assassination, taken by a spectator. If Vincent Bugliosi thought his mammoth Reclaiming History would put an end to this debate, Kelin is determined to prove him wrong. (Oct.)
