A history of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, from eyewitness accounts through to the police reactions, investigations, and aftermath. Based on in-depth interviews conducted in Dallas, it features forty-nine key eye-witnesses, police officers, deputy sheriffs, and government officials. Here, participants speak without interpretation, editing or rewording to fit some preconcieved speculation. Unlike the testimony given in the Warren Commission volumes, the contributors openly state their opinions regarding conspiracy and cover-ups. There are stories from the Dallas Police Department, few being relayed until now. The text aims to humanize those involved in the events in Dallas in 1963 and includes photographs of the participants around the time of the assassination and as they appear today. The work points to the question; was there a conspiracy in the assassination of President Kennedy? It aims to give readers a good perspective on the subject, allowing them to sift through the evidence and draw their own conclusions.

Review:

Sneed accomplishes what has never been done before, which is to tell the story of the four days from the Dallas point of view.... Sneed's contribution [is] a brilliant one.... He presents every notable event as if through a prism, with each interviewee corroborating the basic facts but never exactly matching the other accounts, adding a detail here and there and at times even contradicting earlier ones. The result is a pageturner, not only because the story is dramatic but because the reader becomes eager to see how the next person saw it. - Max Holland, The Nation ""Sneed has done an outstanding job.... [His] earnest quest for accuracy and fairness permeates the book.... The author scored a major coup in getting Dallas law enforcement officials to talk openly about the tragedy."" - Legacies

From the Publisher:

A new original source book on the Kennedy assassination
Over a period of years the author of No More Silence interviewed forty-nine key eyewitnesses of the Kennedy Assassination. They include detectives, FBI agents, uniformed police officers, eyewitnesses, and journalists. They recall in this book in their own words what they saw and did on that momentous occasion. They reflect at length over the meaning of what they saw. This book includes important new source material for anyone interested in the Kennedy assassination, and it provides a vivid picture especially of law enforcement in Dallas at the time. It is a straightforward account told through the voices of the participants themselves. It draws no conclusions on its own, although plenty of those interviewed do. It is difficult to imagine how future books on the assassination can be written without reference to this work. The book includes photographs of those interviewed, many of them "then and now" photos.
