FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘. informed by sober political analysis and a wealth of careful documentation. Charting a trajectory of events leading from the Bay of Pigs to Dallas to Watergate, Oglesby underscores a basic clash of interests between Eastern liberal ‘Yankees’ and Southwestern conservative ‘Cowboys.’. .Was JFK, a ‘Yankee,’ killed by a cabal composed of ‘Cowboy’ elements of the CIA, government and organized crime? Oglesby’s theory provides perhaps the most coherent explanation to date of a motive for the JFK assassination. But there’s more: his scrupulous analysis of the Watergate break-in and cover-up opens up astounding possibilities that include, along with more familiar material, his speculation that James McCord, one of the ‘burglars,’ was a CIA ‘double agent’ who deliberately set up the Water- gate fiasco to discredit Nixon. Like a ghost an old question stirs: what did Nixon know and when did he know it?’ - Publishers Weekly. ‘Carl Oglesby’s new book is not only exciting and thoroughly researched, it presents the only analytic framework—originated by himself—which makes sense of the violent events of the last decade and a half of our recent political history, and puts them all into a coherent framework: the Yankee vs. Cowboy analysis. ‘ The important question looms: why is it that Oglesby has been alone in coming up with this framework? I think the answer is that the methodologies of other writers and researchers have led them astray: the free-market economists who are critical of government actions never bother to ask who benefited from those actions and who were likely to be responsible for them; the Marxists are anxious to indict an abstract, mythical and unified ‘capitalist class’ for all evils of government, and believe that detailed research into concrete divisions and conflicts among power elites detract from such an indictment; those sociologists who have engaged in concrete power elite analysis have only examined structures (who owns corporation X, who belongs to what social clubs?) rather than the dynamics of concrete historical events; the one writer who has treated Yankees and Cowboys has been so blinded by particular hostility to the Cowboys that he virtually includes everyone living in the Sunbelt as part of a vast Cowboy conspiracy; and the various doughty investigators and reporters of Dallas or Watergate have stuck to surface events because they lacked the overall coherent framework. ‘Carl Oglesby has surmounted all of these defects, and has therefore been able to make a giant breakthrough in explaining our recent history.’ — Murray Rothbard, economist and author of America’s Great Depression. ‘Carl Oglesby is a masterful storyteller as well as an acute political mind. His book has the hard ring of truth, though based at times on educated speculations. His narrative from Dallas to Watergate sounds mighty authentic to me.’ — Philip Nobile, syndicated columnist and author of Intellectual Skywriting. Very Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers.
