In 1963, New Orleans was a hotbed of CIA-spon­sored anti-Cas­tro guer­ril­la activ­i­ty. Some­times called the “Casablan­ca of the South,” the Big Easy was awash with intrigue and mys­tery. Into this con­spir­a­cy-laden atmos­phere stepped one of America’s most inex­plic­a­ble his­tor­i­cal fig­ures: Lee Har­vey Oswald. Three years lat­er Jim Gar­ri­son, the Dis­trict Attor­ney of New Orleans, would launch his own probe into the New Orleans aspects of the Kennedy assas­si­na­tion. A pop­u­lar and flam­boy­ant fig­ure, Gar­ri­son added to that rep­u­ta­tion by charg­ing New Orleans busi­ness­man, Clay Shaw, with con­spir­a­cy to mur­der Pres­i­dent Kennedy. After two years of con­tro­ver­sy, Shaw was final­ly tried and acquit­ted, but not before the Gar­ri­son inves­ti­ga­tion would sharply divide the city of New Orleans and the crit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ty.

In 1991 the debate was once again met as Oliv­er Stone’s pop­u­lar film JFK elec­tri­fied audi­ences and re-ignit­ed the Gar­ri­son con­tro­ver­sy.

Now, in 1999, a new work has explored this issue in acute detail. In Let Jus­tice Be Done, the author has con­duct­ed an unpar­al­leled inves­ti­ga­tion into one of the crit­i­cal episodes of the 1960’s. Let Jus­tice Be Done is an impor­tant his­tor­i­cal “post-mortem” in which the author uti­lizes dili­gent inter­view­ing, research, and new­ly declas­si­fied doc­u­ments to recount an impor­tant page in our country’s his­to­ry.
