Product description

Review

"A convincing, scrupulously researched, and chilling rebuttal to the 'lone gunman, no conspiracy' account. . . . Strongly recommended.—Library Journal

"Fifty years from now, writers may still be grinding out new studies and theories about the Kennedy assassination. If so, Breach of Trust probably will be one of their important starting points."--Dallas Morning News

"McKnight's meticulous and well written book manages to expose the political bias that infiltrated so much of the Warren Commission's methods."--Law and Politics Review

"This lucid and persuasive critique of the official version of the assassination is the best book on the subject in years."--Salon.com

"The Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy . . . was instantly implausible because the authors hid the secrets they knew (and ignored the ones they didn't)."--David Ignatius, Washington Post Book World

"A shrewd, well-researched, deeply provocative investigation into the gross delinquencies of the Warren Commission. Essential reading."--Douglas Brinkley, author of Cronkite

"An extraordinary and exceptionally well-written work that convincingly proves that political reasons, not high investigative standards, formed the Warren Commission, guided its inquiry, and dictated its conclusions."--David R. Wrone, author of The Zapruder Film: Reframing JFK's Assassination

"It's impossible in brief to do full justice to McKnight's persuasive study, which adds immeasurably to our knowledge of the assassination and ensuing investigation."--Michael L. Kurtz, author of The Crime of the Century: The Kennedy Assassination from a Historian's Perspective

"Reopens old questions and poses new challenges to the 'official story.' No one interested in the Kennedy 'case' can afford not to read it."--Lloyd C. Gardner, author of The Case That Never Dies: The Lindbergh Kidnapping --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Gerald D. McKnight is professor emeritus of history at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland, and the author of The Last Crusade: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the FBI, and the Poor People's Campaign. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
