ABSTRACT
The article recommends two books on the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, in light of the 40th anniversary. The first book is William Manchester's 1967 narrative "The Death of a President," which movingly chronicles JFK's murder moment by moment; the second is Gerald Posner's 1993 "Case Closed," a convincing assessment of the conspiracy theories surrounding Dallas.
