In this book, DiEu­ge­nio, who has been inves­ti­gat­ing the Kennedy assas­si­na­tion for ten years, expands on the major points brought out in JFK , the Oliv­er Stone movie. Both Stone and DiEu­ge­nio agree with Jim Gar­rison’s find­ings that the assas­si­na­tion was the result of a con­spir­a­cy, that mem­bers of the U.S. intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty were involved, that Kennedy was assas­si­nat­ed to allow U.S. for­eign pol­i­cy to be changed, and that the assas­si­na­tion amount­ed to a coup d’e­tat. While DiEu­ge­nio dis­cuss­es Kennedy’s rocky rela­tion­ship with the CIA, he focus­es on the Clay Shaw tri­al and the medi­a’s unfair depic­tion of Gar­ri­son as a crank. DiEu­ge­nio also points out that in 1975, both the Church Com­mit­tee and the House Select Com­mit­tee on Assas­si­na­tions con­clud­ed, as had Gar­ri­son, that Lee Har­vey Oswald was linked with the CIA and Cuban exiles. The book is thor­ough­ly doc­u­ment­ed with end­notes, appen­dix­es, and a bib­li­og­ra­phy of over 200 items. While no new rev­e­la­tions are offered, DiEu­ge­nio’s impec­ca­ble research and clear­ly writ­ten analy­sis makes this a good choice for most libraries.
