Now, for the first time in almost thirty years, explosive new evidence reveals much about the CIA's involvement in an event that devastated the entire nation and irrevocably altered the course of history. In Plausible Denial, Mark Lane, author of Rush to Judgement, the provocative and bestselling critique of the Warren Commission's official report on the assassination, makes startling revelations about the CIA's involvement in a plot to murder the President. Plausible Denial is the result of documents made available by the Freedom of Information Act and by sworn depositions Lane was able to take from former CIA operatives and officials for a little-publicized libel trial in the U.S. District Court of Miami.'

2 NORTH, MARK Act of treason. The role of J. Edgar Hoover in the Assasination [sic Assassination] of President Kennedy
New York Carroll & Graf Publishers 1991 088184747X / 9780881847475 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
671 pages, 8 plates, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: The assassination of John F. Kennedy continues to haunt the American people. The debate surrounding that infamous event has intensified over the past quarter of a century because specific people in the government were able to virtually guarantee that the murder would remain unsolved. ACT OF TREASON changes all that. In this breakthrough book, Mark North offers irrefutable evidence that fully discloses both the conspirators who committed the crime and the official cover-up that followed. The revelations here are not based on speculation or circumstantial evidence. The conclusions are based on documented facts gathered over five years of intensive research. Act of Treason marshals undeniable proof that J. Edgar Hoover, the Director of the FBI, had learned by September 1962 of a plot to kill the President. Hoover not only did nothing to prevent the assassination from taking place, he actually worked to make sure that the plan would be successful. . . . Mark North's interest in the assassination of President Kennedy began in 1975 when he first viewed the Zapruder film. Once North's interest was piqued, he then spent over five years investigating and researching the Kennedy assassination, resulting in ACT OF TREASON. Mark North is a lawyer who also holds a degree in history. ; 671 pages

3 TRASK, RICHARD B. National Nightmare on Six Feet of Film: Mr. Zapruder's Home Movie And the Murder of President Kennedy
Danvers, MA Yeoman Press 2005 0963859544 / 9780963859549 Soft Cover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
392 pages, well illustrated (16 pages in color) , pictorial wrappers, very good. From the publisher: "This is the true story of a little piece of 8mm film made in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy visited Dallas, Texas. Abraham Zapruder's 26-second home movie captured in horrific clarity the public murder of the President. His six-foot long filmstrip soon became one of the most monetarily valuable artifacts in world history, and arguably "the most historic film ever shot." Zapruder's film and its subsequent study and interpretation by government investigations, the mass media and thousands of assassination buffs, is a controversial and convoluted tale. Richard Trask puts the film's significance into a readable context and displays how this small slice of historic reality has become the image by which the Kennedy assassination will forever be remembered. About the Author: Richard B. Trask is an archivist and historian who lives in a circa 1681 house that he and his wife Ethel restored. Together they publish occasional books on history under the name "Yeoman Press." Trask is an expert on the 1692 Salem witchcraft era and has served as consultant and interviewee on numerous documentaries and television programs. His expertise in both historical photography and the assassination of President Kennedy has led to the writing of several books and serving as a consultant for CBS News and the Assassination Records Review Board. Josiah Thompson, author of the seminal work, "Six Seconds in Dallas," wrote the author about this book: "Since 1963, book after book has been churned out on the Kennedy assassination. With few exceptions, these have been works of advocacy. Long after they've been forgotten, Richard Trask's works of true historical scholarship will be remembered. His 'Pictures of the Pain' (1994) set a standard for objective scholarship which has made it a leading reference work. His new book on the Zapruder film, 'National Nightmare on Six Feet of Film' (2005) , is even better. Its scrupulous scholarship and attention to detail, its avoidance of advocacy, make it the definitive work on the Zapruder film. Anyone serious about studying the photographic record of the assassination needs both in their library."

4 TRASK, RICHARD B. Pictures of the Pain: Photography and the Assassination of President Kennedy
Danvers, MA Yeoman Press 1994 0963859501 / 9780963859501 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
638 pages, well illustrated, text maps and diagrams, map endpapers, cloth, DJ, very good. From the publisher: This highly illustrated volume, including many photographs never before published, looks at the rich but understudied photographic history of the President John F. Kennedy assassination. During a political trip to Texas in November 1963, the President was cut down by assassin bullets while riding in a noontime motorcade through downtown Dallas. At the killing scene in Dealey Plaza many people carried cameras and recorded, in various photographic formats and with different equipment and skills, the last moments in the life of a United States Chief Executive. The photographers included professional photojournalists and rank amateurs, who captured on film in a form truer than any person's memory, relevant and dramatic slices of the reality of the scene. This book examines the history of those films and photographs, including the famous Abraham Zapruder movie clip and dozens of other lesser known pictures. Revealed is the story of how these images were used, and sometimes abused, by the news media and governmental investigations as well as assassination critics who distrusted the government's conclusions in the case. The beliefs of a number of researchers who have discovered assassins within some of these photo images is critically examined. The stories of several photographers who in more recent years claimed to be at the assassination scene and saw important proofs of conspiracy are also carefully studied. A major contribution to the historical record is the author's painstaking pursuit of photographer-witnesses who had not previously been questioned about their presence at the assassination. ; 638 pages

Hear these articulate observers recount the traumatic, historic and sad events they witnessed. Examine their photo coverage in large-format, full frame images made on November 22, 1963. This new and enlarged hardcover, acid-free paper, 144-page, 8" x 11" book reproduces 125 photographs. Included here is coverage of President Kennedy's Fort Worth morning activities, his reception at Love Field in Dallas, the motorcade and assassination scene, activity at Parkland Memorial Hospital, the casket arriving back at Air Force One, the swearing-in of Lyndon Johnson as President, activity in and around Dealey Plaza and the Texas School Book Depository following the assassination, the Dallas Trade Mart, the Dallas Sheriff's office and activity at the Dallas Police Department, the showing of Oswald to the press, the Tippit funeral and Jack Ruby's December bail hearing. Also included are the circumstances relating to several later controversial photographs taken by these three photographers, including "the wink photo," Oswald in the Book Depository doorway, Ruby in Dealey Plaza, activity around the sewer cover, and the "second assassin" gun. Many of the photographs in this book have never been published before, including a newly discovered photo of the Grassy Knoll just after the shooting, taken by LIFE photographer Art Rickerby from the motorcade. Photos also include scenes of the "Impeach Earl Warren" sign, Trauma Room Two, Oswald at Parkland, and portraits of Rev. Huber, Marguerite Oswald and Jack Ruby. The skill of these three photographers and their ability to locate themselves at the right place at the right time allows us to experience in dramatic words and with on-the-spot pictures, one of the seminal events of the 20th century history. On that day in Dallas, American history was changed forever. ; 144 pages
