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 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.
"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. Nobody yet has been able to place him in that building (the Book Depository) with a gun in his hand"
>Also listed without comment is this quote from John J. McCloy. That gentlemen was a Warren Commission member and former President of the World Bank. He asserted that the WC agenda was "to show that America is not a banana republic where a government can be changed by conspiracy"
"Who's Who" also relates many instances of the botched autopsies of JFK and the myriad of suspicious deaths of men and women with any connections to the murder, however remote.
This reviewer read "Who's Who" sequentially, as in a regular publication. Others, especially those doing research may wish to concentrate on a particular aspect or specific individuals. "Who's Who" grants that flexibility.
Those misguided naysayers who cling to the fantasy that JFK was murdered by a lone gunmen should read "Who's Who". WW does not espouse a certain point but lays out the facts, allowing the reader to decide independently where the responsibilities lie for the terrible events of November 22, 1963. That is its strength.
