Riding in an open-topped convertible through Dallas on November 22, 1963, Lyndon B. Johnson heard a sudden explosive sound at 12:30 PM. The Secret Service sped him away to safety, but not until 1:20 PM did he learn that John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. Sworn in next to a bloodstained Jackie Kennedy at 2:40 PM, Johnson worked feverishly until 3:00 in the morning, agonizing about the future of both his nation and his party. Unbeknownst to him, his actions had already determined the tragic outcome of his presidency. In November 22, 1963, historian Steven Gillon tells the story of how Johnson consolidated power in the twenty-four hours following the assassination. Based on scrupulous research and new archival sources, this gripping narrative sheds new and surprising light on one of the most written-about events of the twentieth century.

Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty, the former CIA operative known as “X,” offers a history-shaking perspective on the assassination of president John F. Kennedy. His theories were the basis for Oliver Stone’s controversial movie JFK. Prouty believed that Kennedy’s death was a coup d’état, and he backs this belief up with his knowledge of the security arrangements at Dallas and other tidbits that only a CIA insider would know (for example, that every member of Kennedy’s cabinet was abroad at the time of Kennedy’s assassination). His discussion of the elite power base he believes controlled the U.S. government will scare and enlighten anyone who wants to know who was really behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

In October 1992, Dear Abby asked her readers, "Where were you when President Kennedy was shot?" More than 300,000 people took the trouble to respond. While several responses were published in December 1992, it became obvious that no single column could do justice to that question. In letters and postcards from all over the world, ordinary people described memories that were fascinating, ironic, poignant, and even humorous—some memories so vivid "as if it were yesterday." The letters reflect a less hectic time—a time when children came home from school for lunch; women ironed a lot; college men and women lived in separate dorms; and people watched black-and-white TV. This book captures some of the more unusual and touching stories of how life was in the '60s. They come from people in their eighties and nineties. and those who recall that tragic day as their "first childhood memory."

While Richard Nixon's culpability for Watergate has long been established—most recently by PBS in 2003—what's truly remarkable that after almost forty years, conventional accounts of the scandal still don't address Nixon's motive. Why was President Nixon willing to risk his reelection with so many repeated burglaries at the Watergate—and other Washington offices—in just a few weeks? What motivated Nixon to jeopardize his presidency by ordering the wide range of criminal operations that resulted in Watergate? What was Nixon so desperate to get at the Watergate, and how does it explain the deeper context surrounding his crimes? For the first time, the groundbreaking investigative research in Watergate: The Hidden History provides documented answers to all of those questions. It adds crucial missing pieces to the Watergate story—information that President Nixon wanted, but couldn't get, and that wasn't available to the Senate Watergate Committee or to Woodward and Bernstein. This new information not only reveals remarkable insights into Nixon's motivation for Watergate, but also answers the two most important remaining questions: What were the Watergate burglars after? And why was Nixon willing to risk his Presidency to get it? Watergate: The Hidden History reexamines the historical record, including new material only available in recent years. This includes thousands of recently declassified CIA and FBI files, newly released Nixon tapes, and exclusive interviews with those involved in the events surrounding Watergate—ranging from former Nixon officials to key aides for John and Robert Kennedy. This book also builds on decades of investigations by noted journalists and historians, as well as long–overlooked investigative articles from publications like Time magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times.

LBJ aims to prove that Vice President Johnson played an active role in the assassination of President Kennedy and that he began planning his takeover of the U.S. presidency even before being named the vice presidential nominee in 1960. Lyndon B. Johnson's flawed personality and character traits, formed as a child, grew unchecked for the rest of his life as he suffered severe bouts of manic-depressive illness. He successfully hid this disorder from the public as he bartered, stole, and finessed his way through the corridors of power on Capitol Hill, though it's recorded that some of his aides knew of his struggle with bipolar disorder. After years of researching Johnson and the JFK assassination, Phillip F. Nelson conclusively shows that LBJ had an active role in JFK's assassination, and he includes newly-uncovered photographic evidence proving that Johnson knew when and where Kennedy's assassination would take place. Nelson's careful and meticulous research has led him to uncover secrets from one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in our country's history.

Almost nothing gives rise to more national intrigue than the murder of an American president. And on November 22, 2013, the nation remembered the 50th anniversary of one of the most traumatic events in modern American history, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. From day one, the truth behind JFK’s assassination has been mired in controversy and dispute. The Warren Commission, established just seven days after Kennedy’s death, delved into the who, what, when, and where of the tragedy, and over the course of the following year compiled an 889-page report that arrived at the now widely contested conclusion: Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin. In Who Really Killed Kennedy?, No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D., provides readers with the ultimate JFK assassination theory book.

The Radical Right and the Murder of John F. Kennedy: Stunning Evidence in the Assassination of the President Harrison E. Livingstone's major new book, the fifth of his works on the death of JFK, brings together for the first time all of the central evidence demonstrating a domestic Right Wing conspiracy rooted in Texas which assassinated the President on November 22, 1963. The book represents forty years of work. The book discusses in great detail the actual medical evidence and the forgery of the autopsy photographs and X-rays, which Mr. Livingstone first exposed, the alteration of the autopsy report, the framing of the designated patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, and the substitution and fabrication of every single piece of evidence. It discusses the role played in the murder by some of the most powerful men in the country: Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, and Richard Nixon, as well as the rich oil men and companies who backed them. It then describes the cover-ups by the media, the major investigations over the years, the FBI, and the mind-control cooperation at work in the case to misdirect researchers and the public. The book describes in great detail the people and companies in Texas who planned and carried out the assassination. It names names. One recent investigation in the 90s followed Mr. Livingstone's preceeding work and reinvestigated with the witnesses both he and the official investigations had talked to, but this time took into consideration their documentation and what they had actually said, and in a chapter this is his stunning new evidence from the U.S. government under President Clinton that is blowing the lid off the case. Mr. Livingstone first revealed to the Washington press corps in 1998 that there has been such a secret investigation, and spoke for fifty minutes when the Assassination Records Review Board gave their final press conference. As a result, Mr. Livingstone was on all major TV networks and on the "Today" show (NBC) with Katie Couric the next morning. The book also contains the story of Dallas doctor Charles Crenshaw's law suit and the depositions of the editor and writer of the Journal of American Medical Association who libeled him in articles in 1992. Dr. Crenshaw's book about trying to save Kennedy at Parkland Hospital shortly after the shooting came out on the same day as Mr. Livingstone's major work on the medical evidence, High Treason 2, were JAMA's targets, and the depositions contain much discussion of Mr. Livingstone's major impact on the JFK case. This new book is to be followed closely by a sixth book entirely about the Zapruder film, called The Hoax of the Century: Decoding the Forgery of the Zapruder Film.

We now know vastly more about the killing of John F. Kennedy than was known 20 or 30 years ago, and new evidence is accumulating almost every day. This new evidence is being uncovered by the bold application of scientific and technological expertise to the assassination records, including the film, photographic, and autopsy records. Murder in Dealey Plaza presents the latest and best of the new assassination research. As a result of these freshly uncovered findings, it is possible to say with moral certainty and considerable scientific authority that the murder of President Kennedy was committed by a meticulously executed conspiracy which was then observed by an extensive cover-up.

On November 22nd, 1963 the assassination of President John F. Kennedy set into motion a series of events that irrevocably changed American politics and culture. The media frenzy spawned by the controversy surrounding the death of JFK has since given way to a powerful public memory that continues to shape the way we understand politics, the 1960s, and the nation.

Johnson’s subsequent ascension to the presidency. Covering both the political shifts of the time and the cultural fallout of the national tragedy, this book introduces students of the twenty-first century to both an iconic event and to the context in which that event was heralded as iconic. Drawing on newspaper articles, political speeches, letters, and diaries, George critically re-examines the event of JFK’s death and its persistent political and cultural legacy.

The vast literature generated by President John F. Kennedy's assassination in November 1963 and the search for who killed him hinges on five uncontested facts: a) President Kennedy was shot at 12.30pm local time, in Dallas, Texas on 22 November 1963 while riding through the centre of Dallas in an open-top car. b) The Governor of Texas, John Connally, who was sitting in front of Kennedy, was wounded. c) Kennedy was automatically succeeded by his Vice-President, Lyndon Johnson. d) 80 minutes after the assassination, police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald, a 24-year-old Marxist ex-marine, for Kennedy's murder. e) Two days later, on Sunday 24 November, Oswald was shot dead while in police custody by Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner. These are almost the only facts everyone agrees about the assassination. To this day, many have expressed an opinion but nobody has conclusively proved who killed President Kennedy. The argument is between those who believe the official version - that Kennedy was murdered by Oswald - and those who believe that Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy. Chris Lightbown is an experienced investigative journalist who has worked for the Sunday Times, and his masterly book is the first to use the network of high-quality but unknown independent researchers whose conferences, internet sites, lectures and books have largely been ignored by the mainstream media. Lightbown's book is a brilliant piece of investigative reporting. It is also an utterly convincing and gripping narrative that provides the greatest clarity to the dark event that altered the twentieth century.

“Historians may have locked the box on the JFK assassination and the life of Lyndon Baines Johnson but in reading James Norvell’s riveting “out of the box” tale, you will shiver with nagging thoughts of intrigue and doubt. Norvell’s semi-fictitious story, bolstered with historical facts, is a spellbinding masterpiece. He has interacted with principal characters – particularly Madeleine Brown and Billie Sol Estes – and done so in a personal manner and over an extended period of time. The more you read, the more you’ll wonder, “Could this have happened?” Be careful – once you pick it up you won’t put it down. Dynamite!” John H. (Jack) Grubbs, Ph.D, Brigadier General (Ret.), U. S. Army, author of Dryline and Bad Intentions. “Jim Norvell’s unique approach to explaining the assassination of President Kennedy leads the reader into this complex and often difficult subject from a fresh direction. I recommend this book primarily because it exposes even the experienced student of the subject to information with which he may not have been familiar, and to possible associations between ‘competing theories’ about what happened in Dallas, that may indicate many of them are not necessarily mutually exclusive after all. Mr. Norvell does not pull any punches, and does not sugar-coat the assassination story in any way. An engaging read.” Douglas P. Horne, formerly Chief Analyst for Military Records, Assassination Records Review Board, B.A. in History, Ohio State University, and author of Inside the Assassination Records Review Board, Vol. I-V. “My classmate from the Naval Academy, Jim Norvell, has put together a very shocking scenario that leads to a very different assassination event than the “lone gunman, lone event, Oswald-did-it” type answer. Instead he constructs a list of timed events with key power brokers in 1963 that provides a hard-core conspiratorial assassination plot. . . And if you are not entirely convinced these diverse power brokers can mesh and team to make the killing of a President possible, then go very slowly through the chapters that lay down the assassination time lines . . .Point by point, bullet by bullet, the historical novel unfolds. . . .But I assure you that it will not end with a lone event, a lone gunman. Two additional assassinations follow with the shootings of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy. Norvell drives you back in time to the 60’s to piece together for you an entirely different assassination than the one focused on Oswald and defended as such by the Warren Commission. This is a very good read for all and especially for those who to this day can remember where we were on November 22, 1963.” Alexander J. Krekich, Vice Admiral, U. S. Navy (Retired); B.S. U.S. Naval Academy 1964, M.S.A. George Washington University, 1972; U.S. Army Command & General Staff College, 1973; and Naval War College, 1978. “I extend personal thanks to Jim Norvell for his deep insights, for connections not uncovered anywhere else, and for bringing us nearer to the solution to the most horrific crime in American History, horrific for what it did to one man and his family, horrific for what it did to America, and horrific for the failure of the authorities to mete out justice.” Barr McClellan, B.A., J.D., University of Texas, author of Blood, Money and Power, How LBJ Killed JFK, and former law partner with LBJ’s attorney, Ed Clark. “Jim Norvell’s historical novel is a truly remarkable study of a broad range of facts surrounding a single individual. What he has carefully developed is almost unthinkable to well-adjusted human beings. To my knowledge, this depiction has not been accomplished before in our time, and he should be commended for all the long years of effort that it required. I found that his identification of LBJ as a narcissist is quite well-founded. There is a long and well-established history of those traits among world leaders in every field, many in very public roles. Health care professionals have identified and articulated in textbooks different types of narcissism and their symptomatic traits, some of which are incredibly destructive and actually evil. Jim’s novel acutely and accurately displays the personification of pure evil in LBJ. I think he has written a serious best-seller which will lead readers to thoughtfully and carefully examine the traits and actions which our public figures display.” Ray C. Witter, Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.), B.S. U.S. Naval Academy, M.S., Engineering Accoustics, Naval Postgraduate School

The Memoirs of John F. Kennedy: A Novel brings to life the tantalizing possibilities of "what might have been" had JFK remained president after November 22, 1963. This book imagines an America where progressive leadership takes hold during the 1960s, where President Kennedy, after a grueling fight for his life in a Dallas hospital, survives his chest wounds and returns to the presidency. He is elected for a second term. He does not mount a ground war in Vietnam. Foreign relations with Cuba, the Soviet Union, South America, and our allies and adversaries around the world follow a very different path. This novel interweaves a two-track story. One takes place in 1963 at Parkland Medical Center and follows Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover as they cope with the explosive events of the assassination attempt while the wounded president hovers near death. The other more lighthearted fictional story-line unfolds through the eyes of Patrick Hennessey, the memoirist appointed by JFK during the approaching end of his second term in 1968. Through in-depth talks at the White House, Camp David, Hyannisport, on Air Force One, and golfing on Kennedy's private course at Glen Ora, Patrick gets to know the president as he reviews his decisions regarding the difficult path toward a peaceful resolution of world crises. This well researched alternate history will strike a chord with readers worldwide-those fascinated with the Kennedy mystique and those interested in the potential for politics to be "done right" during challenging times. Considering the current period-and the 50th anniversary of JFK's election-re-imagining a more positive past may enable us to collectively envision a more enlightened future.
