From the Back Cover

Comprehensive, accessible and unprecedented, "Who's Who in the JFK Assassination" presents vital information on each of more than 1,400 individuals related in any noteworthy way to the murders of President John F. Kennedy, Dallas Police Officer J. D. Tippit and alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22 and 24, 1963. Based on years of research, a wealth of sources and a long study of the Warren Commission's twenty-six volumes, this encyclopedic book includes:

A-to-Z entries on virtually all the suspects, victims, witnesses, law enforcement officials and investigators.

Quick identification of each person followed by biographical facts, testimony, evidence and more.

Detailed listings of sources.

Explorations of the puzzling theories and countless sides of the case.

Extensive cross-referencing of entries, allowing readers to follow their own investigations and construct their own conclusions.

This all-new who's who will prove an essential companion to the many best-selling books, documentaries and feature films about the JFK assassination. Bound to be referred to again and again, it is the complete resource for anyone who wants to know more about-- or wants to keep better track of-- the key players involved in one of the most infamous chapters in American history.

I have been reading books on the assassination of John Kennedy my entire life. Then I came across this book, "Who's Who in the JFK Assassination", I couldn't beleive it. Never before did I read through a book so fast and when I was done, I had to go back and start over. It's not really meant to read cover-to-cover, though. When I am reading a book on the assassination, and see a name I don't know, I can flip to it in this book and know just who this man is. For anyone who has looked at the assassination, they know you come across hundreds of names and you can't remember them all, thats where this book came in. Let's say I see the name Ruby Henderson; I can look her up in this book and find out she saw TWO men in the 6th floor of the TSBD, one of whom had a rifle, but she thought they were with the secret service. Anyway, I would tell ANY person looking for information on the Kennedy Assassination to get this book anyway they can. What else can I say, Michael Benson did a GREAT job.

in my government's failure to respect you when asking about [what are State Crimes] where as this work is most strongly recommended for non-electronic, "hard copy record" of historically proven, documented evidence of a criminal takeover of my government back in 1963.

I love my country but I hate & fear the way my government or elements within my government has conducted business because this publication validates what Sylivia Meagher created in a way that eventually, piss poor leadership skills validate a lack of respect for your fellow man. She pointed it out in 1967 where as this Encyclopedia, initially created in 1993 has enhanced that observation.

I feel fortunate I came across this amazing work a couple of years ago by Michael Benson because there's thousands of published works out there and it's overwhelming trying to weed out the BS, compared to what the historical, factual evidence presents. I say BS because I am the living example of one of those Americans who's been at the receiving end of the mushroom dinners regarding what happened to JFK and how that public execution was distorted by officialdom until just the last couple of years.

Specifically, I was born in January 63 where as I come from that generation of Americans abused with specific exposure to mass media's influence/distortion about my society. The proof of this is this Encyclopedia and what this material can reveal to one that's willing to look into the dark history of America. It is time specific and it limited in that it's not on Kindle but that means nothing until the day the power fails. Just one of those must have books for me personally in that your gas mileage might differ in that it does not get the hard work out it deserves but I feel that any material I have not read within the book is presented reasonability as what I've read elsewhere in the Encyclopedia. I recommend this publication to those who require mature and comprehensible information.

Just got through reading this book. What a wealth of info. I am now going to read High Treason, which is referred to many times in the A to Z book. If you don't walk away from this without a doubt that there was a major conspiracy, I don't know what planet you're from. Just when you think you know who did it, there are more and more people introduced to the theory, leaving you consumed by curiosity. What a great book. This books lists alphabetically the people who were involved in the assassination, the Oswald shooting, and the Tippit shooting.

"Who's Who in the JFK Assassination" is yet another in a long line of well-researched and documented reports on this deeply troubling subject. It was actually possible to learn something new from reading. In fact, that is exactly what happens every time this reviewer reads more on the JFK murder.

"Who's Who" is notable in that there is no true narrative. The text is arrayed in a pure research format. Every single person who has any possible connection with the events of November 22, 1963 is listed in straight alphabetical order. Some entries are a mere single sentence, others go on for pages. Each entry is annotated to help the reader do deeper research. This review will not attempt to skewer the Warren Commission, the CIA or the other bad guys. That has been done vey capably before. Instead it will list new unanswered questions or new facts (new to this reviewer) concerning JFK's murder. These are listed here:

>Why did then Vice-President Johnson attempt to move Texas Governor Connally out of the President's limo? What did LBJ know in advance?

>Why did the Dallas office of the FBI wait until the very day (!) of Connally's burial to ask permission to examine his wrist for bullet fragments? An examination might have proven that there was more than one shooter in Dallas that afternoon and destroyed the positively daft "Magic Bullet" theory. For more insight into the "theory" and an inclusive time frame of the President's murder, one should read "Six Seconds in Dallas" by Josiah Thompson.

> This review will list without comment a direct quote from Jesse Curry, Dallas Chief of Police at the time of the murder: "We don't have any proof that Oswald fired that weapon and never did.
