Product description

Review

"Anyone who has seen one of Cox's films knows he is a great story teller, and this book is no exception. He lays out the history of events leading up to and after the assassinations of JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald in a clear and easy to understand manner. He not only does a remarkable job of bringing the charged political atmosphere of the late 1950s and early 1960s to life on the page, but does his best to be as objective as possible." - Richard B. Marcus, Seattle PI

"This focus on American extremism isn’t unexpected if you’re familiar with Cox as the dissident, émigré filmmaker behind Repo Man and Walker. If some Kennedy obsessives will inevitably depart from the personal view Cox lays out in the last chapter, it’s nonetheless fascinating to learn how his lifelong interest began as a 15-year-old in the U.K.―back when Warren Commission skepticism was a little more fashionable." --Georgia Straight
