In 1948, at the dawn of his country's independence, Mohandas Gandhi, father of the Indian independence movement and a beloved prophet of nonviolence, was assassinated by Hindu nationalists. In riveting detail, author James W. Douglass shows as he previously did with the story of JFK how police and security forces were complicit in the assassination and how in killing one man, they hoped to destroy his vision of peace, nonviolence, and reconciliation. Gandhi had long anticipated and prepared for this fate. In reviewing the little-known story of his early "experiments in truth" in South Africa the laboratory for Gandhi's philosophy of satyagraha, or truth force Douglass shows how early he confronted and overcame the fear of death. And, as with his account of JFK's death, he shows why this story matters: what we can learn from Gandhi's truth in the struggle for peace and reconciliation today.

Verschwörungstheorien genießen in der Bevölkerung große Popularität. In den Wissenschaften haben sie hingegen einen eher schlechten Ruf – den Leitmedien gelten sie als Ausdruck überzogenen politischen Misstrauens oder gar kollektiver Paranoia. Der vorliegende Band erklärt, wie diese unterschiedliche Bewertung zustande kommt und woraus der anhaltende Erfolg von Verschwörungstheorien in der Öffentlichkeit resultiert. Mittels empirischer Fallstudien, medienwissenschaftlicher Rekonstruktionen und theoretischer Reflexionen wagt der Band den Versuch einer soziologischen Ehrenrettung des konspirologischen Gegenwartsdenkens.

Dallas, 22. November 1963 – 12:30 Uhr: Lee Harvey Oswald späht durch das Zielfernrohr seines Gewehrs. John F. Kennedys Kopf erscheint kaum einen Meter entfernt. Oswald weiß, dass er kaum Zeit haben wird. Zwei Schüsse wird er sicher abgeben können – drei, wenn er wirklich schnell ist. Sein Ziel klar vor Augen, atmet er aus und drückt den Abzug. Der erste Schuss trifft den Präsidenten im Nacken. Kennedy sackt leicht zusammen, sein Rückenkorsett, das er wegen seiner Kriegsverletzung dauernd tragen muss, hält ihn aber aufrecht. Beunruhigt wendet Jackie sich ihrem Mann zu. Sie greift nach seiner Schulter und schaut ihm ins Gesicht, um zu sehen, was los ist. Kaum fünf Sekunden sind seit dem ersten Schuss vergangen, da schlägt die zweite Kugel in Kennedys Hinterkopf ein und reißt eine klaffende Wunde. Reflexartig fährt seine Hand hoch zur Stirn, doch ein großer Teil der Schädeldecke ist weggeschleudert worden.

Of the all the people surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy, few are more mysterious and enigmatic than David William Ferrie of New Orleans. Author Judyth Vary Baker knew David Ferrie personally and worked with him in a covert project in New Orleans during the summer of 1963, and this book examines his strange and puzzling behavior both before and after the assassination. At the time of the assassination, Ferrie was a 45-year-old New Orleans resident who was acquainted with some of the most notorious names linked to the assassination: Lee Oswald, Clay Shaw, Guy Banister, Jack Ruby, and Carlos Marcello. He possessed assorted talents and eccentricities: he was at one time a senior pilot with Eastern Airlines until he was fired for homosexual activity on the job; he was also a hypnotist; a serious researcher of the origins of cancer; an amateur psychologist; and a victim of a strange disease, alopecia, which made all of his body void of hair. His odd lifestyle was embellished with an equally bizarre appearance featuring a red toupee and false eyebrows. This is the first book focused solely on David Ferrie and his alleged involvement in the conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

Winner – 2012 Hollywood Book Festival for General Non-Fiction Honorable Mention – 2012 New England Book Festival for General Non-Fiction Honorable Mention - 2012 London Book Festival for General Non-Fiction Who really murdered Mary Pinchot Meyer in the fall of 1964? Why was there a mad rush by CIA counterintelligence chief James Angleton to locate and confiscate her diary? What in that diary was so explosive? Had Mary Meyer finally put together the intricate pieces of a plan to assassinate her lover, President Kennedy, with the trail ultimately leading to the CIA? And was it mere coincidence that Mary was killed less than three weeks after the release of the Warren Commission report? These are the questions that author Peter Janney finally answers in a way that no one else ever has. In doing so, he may well have solved Washington’s most famous unsolved murder. Based on years of painstaking research and interviews, much of it revealed here for the first time, the author traces the key events and influences in the life of Mary Pinchot Meyer, including her first meeting with Jack Kennedy at the Choate School in 1936; her explorations with psychedelic drugs; her relationship with Timothy Leary; and finally how she supported the president as he turned away from the Cold War toward the pursuit of world peace. As we approach the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination—and Mary Meyer’s—Mary’s Mosaic adds to our understanding of why both took place.

Unlike other accounts of the historic attacks on 9/11, this discussion surveys the role of the world’s most advanced military command and control plane, the E-4B, in the day’s events and proposes that the horrific incidents were the work of a covert operation staged within elements of the U.S. military and the intelligence community. Presenting hard evidence in the form of proprietary photos taken from raw footage filmed by CNN, the account places the world’s most advanced electronics platform circling over the White House at approximately the time of the Pentagon attack. The argument offers an analysis of the new evidence within the context of the events and shows that it is irreconcilable with the official 9/11 narrative.

A Kirkus Best Book of 2013 A revelatory, minute-by-minute account of JFK’s last hundred days that asks what might have been Fifty years after his death, President John F. Kennedy’s legend endures. Noted author and historian Thurston Clarke argues that the heart of that legend is what might have been. As we approach the anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination, JFK’s Last Hundred Days reexamines the last months of the president’s life to show a man in the midst of great change, finally on the cusp of making good on his extraordinary promise. Kennedy’s last hundred days began just after the death of two-day-old Patrick Kennedy, and during this time, the president made strides in the Cold War, civil rights, Vietnam, and his personal life. While Jackie was recuperating, the premature infant and his father were flown to Boston for Patrick’s treatment. Kennedy was holding his son’s hand when Patrick died on August 9, 1963. The loss of his son convinced Kennedy to work harder as a husband and father, and there is ample evidence that he suspended his notorious philandering during these last months of his life. Also in these months Kennedy finally came to view civil rights as a moral as well as a political issue, and after the March on Washington, he appreciated the power of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., for the first time. Though he is often depicted as a devout cold warrior, Kennedy pushed through his proudest legislative achievement in this period, the Limited Test Ban Treaty. This success, combined with his warming relations with Nikita Khrushchev in the wake of the Cuban missile crisis, led to a détente that British foreign secretary Sir Alec Douglas- Home hailed as the “beginning of the end of the Cold War.” Throughout his presidency, Kennedy challenged demands from his advisers and the Pentagon to escalate America’s involvement in Vietnam. Kennedy began a reappraisal in the last hundred days that would have led to the withdrawal of all sixteen thousand U.S. military advisers by 1965. JFK’s Last Hundred Days is a gripping account that weaves together Kennedy’s public and private lives, explains why the grief following his assassination has endured so long, and solves the most tantalizing Kennedy mystery of all—not who killed him but who he was when he was killed, and where he would have led us.

Warum musste J.F. Kennedy sterben? – Neueste erkenntnisse der Kenney-Forschung zum 100. Geburtstag JFKs. Seit dem Mord an J. F. Kennedy vor fünfzig Jahren treibt die Frage nach dem "Wer war's?" die Forschung um. Mathias Bröckers will aber wissen: Warum musste Kennedy sterben? In der Neuauflage seines Buchs von 2013 unterzieht er die neuesten Erkenntnisse und Deutungen der verschiedenen Lager einer umfassenden Pru ̈fung. Behörden, Geheimdienste und Militär halten seit Jahrzehnten mit dem Verweis auf die "nationale Sicherheit" Akten zum Fall Kennedy zurück. Warum, wenn es tatsächlich nur um einen einsamen verwirrten Einzeltäter ginge? Das spannend erzählte und faktenreiche Buch belegt: Die von Kennedy begonnene Politik der Deeskalation des Kalten Krieges sollte mit allen Mitteln verhindert werden.
