The Passing of George Michael Evica

The arresting religious-intelligence phenomenon that formed the focus of Evica's final work relates not just to Oswald, but other figures in the assassination landscape, like Ruth and Michael Paine, and Ruth Kloepfer. It had been ignored for too long and it took Evica to open up the issue, writes Jim DiEugenio.

The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd was subtitled in its trailer, “The Untold Story of the Birth of the CIA.” This is a real misnomer, since most of the “untold” actual events are immediately recognizable to anyone who has a cursory knowledge of the history of the CIA. In another sense the subtitle is true since the story it tells is very liberally fictionalized. In that sense, it is untold, writes Philip Sheridan.

Gerald McKnight, Breach of Trust

But, as with the best work in the field, it helps us transcend that shame with the beauty and power of pure understanding, writes Jim DiEugenio.

David Talbot, Brothers

Despite its up and downs, overall this is a worthwhile and unique book. Its most important aspect, of course, is the proof of Robert Kennedy's secret quest for the truth about Dallas. That is an important contribution with which to rebut the opposition's argument of: "Well, why didn't Bobby do anything?" We can finally dispose of that question in a truthful and forceful way, writes Jim DiEugenio.
