Fascinating collection of articles on the assassinations of John F Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. Key contributors are Jim DiEugenio and Lisa Pease but there are also pieces by other notable writers including John Armstrong (excerpts from his increasingly rare book "Harvey and Lee") and James W Douglass. If you have never read anything on these key events in recent American history this book would be a great place to start. If you are familiar with the cases you are certain to find out something new and important.

The loss of these leaders is still keenly felt across the world today. Jim DiEugenio, Lisa Pease and their fellow writers succeed brilliantly in providing a compelling analysis of these historical events and a demonstration of how responding with commitment, integrity and faith in our common humanity can start to build a better future. I loved this book.

HASH(0x8d1dfa68) out of 5 stars The People's Report on the Assassinations of the 1960s 12 Mar. 2003
By David H. Stern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When a concerned citizen reviews the publications of official government investigations of the major assassinations of the 1960s, they are faced with a maze of truths, half-truths, and conclusions, both reasonable and indefensible. The single consistent theme that emerges is that when Power Lies, it does so with Authority. It also does so with the full cooperation of the Media, whose livelihood depends on ready access to power.
The best we can probably hope for now is the simple release of information without comment, where (most of) the documents are made available to the public, and it is left up to them to make sense out of it. This is a job that will go on for many, many years, but Probe got a running start at it.
Probe Magazine was the publication of CTKA (Citizens for Truth in the Kennedy Assassinations). The group was formed in the wake of the release of Oliver Stone's movie, by a group of men and women, mostly critics from years before, but some new to the issue. I was fortunate enough to be there for some of the early meetings of this group of motivated individuals, but was little more than a fellow consumer when it came to their publication.
But what a publication it was. Accomplished professionals, and individuals with highly developed and specialized knowledge of the case came together to produce articles of breathtaking depth and analysis on a bimonthly basis. Not only did they delve deeper into the JFK case, they also expanded their focus to include the other assassinations of the 1960s and events peripheral to them - the understanding of which helps to put these cases in their proper historical perspective. From one issue to the next, the material just continued to improve. Then, when Lisa Pease joined the effort, her intellectual strength, and energy of commitment helped to spark the project into heights likely not imagined during the organization's humble beginnings. Then, perhaps most amazing to me, they just sustained that greatness until they could go no longer, and stopped publication.
As a result, Probe became a small monthly with wide influence, and deservedly so. I read every issue cover to cover, and saved every last one of them, but I still bought this book, not only for its new material, but perhaps more importantly, for the index that serves to convert this amazing project from great history paper to definitive reference - The People's Report on the Assassinations of the 1960s. This is a report that is rational and honest, and not written for political expediency or to cover anyone's behind, which makes it the best reference on the topic available.
Probe was the product of maximum effort by a few individuals over a relatively short period that produced a result of historical proportions. If you missed it the first time, you definitely do not want to miss it this time. If you were a Probe reader the first time around, this book still demands a prominent place on your bookshelf.

HASH(0x8cd029e4) out of 5 stars Essential Reading 25 July 2003
By Jock Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Besides the furious establishment media counterattack, Oliver Stone's JFK lead to the release of long surpressed documents and evidence and the re-flowering of research and publishing concerning JFK's assassination. Probe was the best journal to come out of the post-JFK enlightenment. It is now, sadly, defunct but Feral House has published an anthology of Probe's best articles, some revised and expanded, along with some new work. The Assassinations is edited, as was Probe, by James DiEugenio and Lisa Pease. James DiEugenio is the author of Destiny Betrayed: JFK, Cuba and the Garrison Case, and he also provides a commentary track on a recent DVD reissue of Stone's JFK. The anthology covers the assassinations of JFK, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, and Malcolm X with over half of the 677 page paperback volume dedicated to JFK.
Some of The Assassinations highlights:
John Armstrong's research into the "Two Oswalds." If you've been a student of the Kennedy assassination for 37 years, your mind is seldom blown. Enter John Armstrong. Armstrong's argues and offers proof of two Oswalds walking among us since childhood.
Lisa Pease on the CIA's Prince of Darkness, James Jesus Angleton.
James DiEugenio and Bill Davy on the Garrison investigation. Some researchers avert their eyes when Garrison's name is mentioned. No such embarrassment here. Clay Shaw's perjury and his CIA connections are revealed in detail.
John Newman on Oswald and the CIA.
Dr. Gary Aguilar's brilliant analysis of the magic bullet. Aguilar is your best guide through the briar patch of medical evidence. No tangles or scratches, guaranteed.

An essential section on the media's complicity in the cover-up, with an emphasis on the Garrison investigation.
The clear and highly readable writing in this anthology is based on meticulous research into the recent disclosures of long suppressed documents and other evidence. Although the fresh material is shocking it is also, in a sense, liberating. You see behind the lies, the propaganda, the disinformation. You don't have to be a longtime student of the bloody politics of the sixties to appreciate the many riches in this volume. The Assassinations is an essential addition to the literature on our secret history. [This review is adapted from my longer review in The Anderson Valley Advertiser (May 21, 2003)]

HASH(0x8d359c98) out of 5 stars Very investigative! 5 Jan. 2005
By Matthew DeLuca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Probe Magazine has always fascinated even lone nut theorists.

The reason why is because it was an extremely investigative Magazine.

James DiEugenio, Lisa Pease, etc have been known for their tireless investigative research into the true circumstances surrounding the death of America's 35th President.

Now, you can read the wonderful articles that the Probe writers worked on concerning the conspiratorial Assassination of not only John F Kennedy, but also the suspicious assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.

Some have said that perhaps these assassinations werent merely isolated events, but that they were all connected in some way.

This is not far fetched when one considers that Bobby Kennedy was shot within a week after he said "Only the powers of the Presidency will reveal the true circumstances of (JFK's) murder" or words to the effect.

Also J Edgar Hoover, who clearly must atleast be suspected in the murder of Martin Luther King Jr, was THE man in charge of the "investigation" of JFK's death.

Also Hoover hated Bobby Kennedy with a purple passion.

It may be true that the same establishment that felt threatened enough by JFK that they decided to kill him, may have killed his Brother to remain in the shadows that they had hid in since '63.

And Martin Luther King Jr, had, at times, made the same enemies, that the Kennedy brothers had.

One cant help recognize the eerie similarities between Lee Harvey Oswald and James Earl Ray.

Whether these assassinations were related or not, this is for certain: This book will really make you think about these assassinations, if you havent before.

This book is so interesting, you will want to read it and reread it again and again.

HASH(0x8d1b9d14) out of 5 stars My head is spinning and my heart is aching 28 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not only is this the best book about the assassinations I've read, but these are the best reviews I've read on Amazon. No stone is left unturned and I weep for the past and fear the future. I will NEVER trust the media to tell the whole truth again. After returning this to the library today, I will buy this book for my collection. Thank you to the authors.

HASH(0x8d359b60) out of 5 stars An Analytical Focus on Media - Intelligence Relationship makes JFK Current Event #1 19 Feb. 2008
By Boyce Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read about thirteen books on the JFK assassination, and I found this book incredible. I learned all kinds of new material, and understood long sprawling arguments for the first time because of their concise summaries in some of these articles.

The articles are especially good on the Corporate Media and in this sense are more relevent to today than almost any current event. The level of detail that is provided about the relationship between the media and intelligence agencies, really makes one think even more profoundly than Chomskys writing, about the implications of this centralized media power for today's news.

I disagree with Vince Palamara. I think this book is much more valuable than Ultimate Sacrifice. This book says what the evidence in that tomb wants to say, but the authors are too cautious to write.

I should mention that this book features two articles by John Armstrong. The hypothesis presented here, at first seems incredible. But it is very well argued and it sure does tie up loose ends and makes impossible timelines seem quite plausible. Armstrong makes his case for a Harvey and a Lee, quite convincingly.

Deserves ten stars.
