Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Cool, clear, concise. Galanor has boiled down a mass of complex materials into an easily accessible, enlightening discussion. Superbly done."
--Michael Parenti, author of Inventing Reality: The Politics of News Media

"Quickly and dramatically Cover-up shatters the lone assassin theory. The weaving of photographs and document with scientific evidence exposes in a remarkably clear way the workings of a cover-up."
--John Loughery, The Hudson Review

"A thoroughly researched account of how the Government's version of the Kennedy assassination is filled with contradictions and impossibilities."
--William Pencak, Professor of American History, Penn State University

"A cogent destruction of the Government's account of the assassination. An astounding amount of evidence counters the deceptions and forgeries that lie at the heart of the official cover-up."
--David S. Lifton, author of Best Evidence

"Galanor skillfully cuts through thirty-five years of clutter and zeros in on the crucial evidence. His systematic, persuasive analysis--supported by beautifully reproduced documents and photographs--will lead any reasonable reader to a chilling but inescapable conclusion: there was a conspiracy and a cover-up."
--Zachary Sklar, co-author of screenplay JFK

"With 40 volumes from two official investigations, as well as hundreds of published books--all devoted to the solution of John F. Kennedy's assassination--Stewart Galanor's eloquent, spare volume is a treasure for novice and expert alike. With understated prose and well-chosen images, Galanor dissects the core issues that hobble the single assassin thesis.
"His amazing short section on Dealey Plaza witnesses may well be the best summation of this evidence in print. Interviews he conducted thirty-two years ago not only formed the basis for this remarkable chapter, but also justified early doubts about the truthfulness of the witness reports the FBI delivered to the Warren Commission."
--Gary L. Aguilar, MD, Head, Division of Ophthalmology, St. Francis Memorial Hospital, San Francisco

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate, brief and best photos ever. February 26, 2015
By CE399
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Five stars for it's factual accuracy and premium job on the photos. The ariel "from-the-back" view of the TSBD, grassy knolls, and Dealey Plaza make this a must-have book. When you want to show someone some Zapruder film frames this is a top resource. Without any prompting, people will frequently spot that the people on the grassy knoll seem to be too big and are not looking at the president but seem uninterested in the motorcade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little primer. August 7, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For those who want a quick and easy read to familiarize themselves with the cover-up that took place surrounding the Kennedy assassination, this is the perfect book. The author's points were made succinctly and the pictures were helpful to better show what the author was trying to convey. I certainly recommend this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Much Here July 24, 2010
By rom
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read in the neighborhood of 12 to 15 books on the subject. Most were pro-conspiracy, ranging from Oswald was involved to he was a patsy. The most compelling was Gerald Posner's "Case Closed" which claims to prove the lone gunman theory. Yes, I am aware of the plagiarissm accusations and some of the erros in the book, but it still makes more sense than most pro-conspiracy works. Many of them contain a lot of dmsinformation and claims that were unfounded, along with unsubstantiated conclusions. Having said that, I believe there was a conspiracy of sorts, probably by the government to cover up their (possible) relationship with Oswald.

This book is kind of like a Cliff's notes. I read nothing new, the author takes discrepancies that may very well have explanations and draws conclusions. A major instance of this involves the massive rear head wound. Much has been made by many critics of the statements made by the Parkland doctors about the existence of a rear head wound. Rarely do they mention that the doctors themselves have largely retracted those statements and/or attributed them to a large piece of skull that had flapped open and was laying toward the back of the presiden'ts head.

Perhaps someone can explain why this persists. You can try to make the case that the doctors have been unduly influenced or anything else you want to posit, but it completely ignores the Zapruder film. It very clearly shows the inpact of the final shot. The side of the president's head is visibly blown out. At the same time that you view the large piece of skull that is blown out of the side, parietal section of his skull you can clearly see the back of his head which is intact. The frame allows you to see that his hair on the back of his head wasn't even out of place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cover-Up reveals the truth! May 29, 2000
I was looking for a book that revealed the truth about the Kennedy assasination. I found it! Galanor has heavily researched the assasination and pieced all the facts together, so that things finally make sense! Galanor is like a police detective, interviewing witnesses, reviewing public documents, studying photographs and sworn testimony. By careful study of physical evidence and eye-witness testimony, piece by piece he determines what could have possibly happened that day in Dealy Plaza and what could not have happened. He packages his findings in an easily accessible format. You don't have to be an expert in pathology or ballistics to understand his book. In a mere 183 pages Galanor has given us a treasure trove of evidence. Very few people in this country still believe Lee Harvey Oswald had anything to do with JFK's murder. This book proves he was innocent. This book also proves that the federal government (The Warren Commission, The Secret Service, The CIA etc) engaged in a very extensive and far reaching conspiracy to cover up the truth about who really killed Kennedy. Physical Evidence was tampered with, eye-witness testimony was ignored or suppressed, witnesses were intimidated into changing their testimony, government officials gave false testimony and even when evidence was found that indicated the assassin could not have been Oswald it was simply ignored. This book stops short of accusing the federal government of planning Kennedy's assassination, however the physical evidence does seem to implicate them. If there were a fair and impartial investigation of Kennedy's death (instead of the horrible travesty of justice that occured in November 1963), several government employees would have been taken in for questioning, and almost certainly numerous arrests would have been made. This book is a must for anyone who wants to know the truth!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must read for everyone! January 9, 2000
There is an old saying "Never Judge a book by its cover." Cover-Up is no exception. Do not be fooled by the small number of pages, you'll find a wealth of information bound inside.
Galanor has the unique ability to separate fact from fiction and relay only the most important information in the written pages. Galanor is able to present his arguments in a clear and decisive manner without rambling.
This book is packed with photos and documents that allow the reader to be able to make a most informed decision about the crime of the century. I have read over 25 books on the subject and this one ranks among the best.

From the novice, to the weekend researcher to the full fledge investigator, everyone will be able to learn something from this book. Galanor has started to take the mystery out of the picture. A real winner and a great piece of work.
