The assassination of John F. Kennedy remains the greatest unsolved mystery in American political history. Though hundreds of books have been written on this topic, an in-depth photographic analysis has never before been published. In this compelling new book, The Killing of a President: The Complete Photographic Record of the JFK Assassination, the Conspiracy, and the Cover-up, readers can examine a comprehensive collection of all the latest research and relevant evidence in the Kennedy case. This authoritative volume contains more than 650 photographs, maps, drawings, and documents that depict and explain the events surrounding the assassination and the cover-up, including a complete analysis of the medical, ballistics, and acoustics evidence; the story of Lee Harvey Oswald; new information on the "grassy knoll" controversy; the Warren Commission proceedings; the details of Jim Garrison's investigation; and a discussion of the House Assassination Committee hearings in the late 1970s. Many of the book's photographs, documents, and data have never before been published because of their suppression by the government or their previous unavailability. The images have been carefully reproduced and many have been optically enhanced by using the latest technology to clarify heretofore unseen detail in the photographs. This step-by-step chronology and comprehensive visual analysis form a revealing case study for anyone interested in the JFK assassination. The publication of The Killing of a President is certain to be unsettling and controversial because it permits the public an unencumbered view of the photographic evidence. While some of the photographs in this book are shocking and disturbing, their appearance here is crucial to showing that a conspiracy did exist to kill John Kennedy. The Killing of a President is a powerful and important book that attempts to unlock the secrets of the conspiracy - one that the American government has supported for the last thirty years.
