9781620875919: Encyclopedia of Assassinations: More than 400 Infamous Attacks that Changed the Course of History

Encyclopedia of Assassinations is the most comprehensive handbook on over 400 assassinations, attempts, and plots against political figures. The narrative entries detail history’s most turbulent moments, including the date, location, and full description of each incident, as well as biographical information about the victim and assassin and the circumstances surrounding each historical event. Here are:

Jesse James: Outlaw killed by Bob Ford in 1882
Ian Gow: Conservative member of the British Parliament killed by a car bomb in 1990
Franz Ferdinand: Archduke and heir to the Austrian throne killed by Gavrilo Princip in 1914
John F. Kennedy: American president killed by Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963
Rajiv Gandhi: Prime Minister of India killed by an unidentified bomber in 1991
Ernesto “Che” Guevara: Revolutionary killed by Bolivian forces in 1967
Abraham Lincoln: American president killed by John Wilkes Booth in 1865
And hundreds more!

This encyclopedia’s illustrations, bibliography, appendix grouping the assassinations by country, and further readings turn it into an essential reference for history teachers, students, crime buffs, and those who are curious about “the most notorious acts of their kind.”
