Volume One takes the reader from the Barrios of Bogota through the intrigues of Manchuria and war-torn South-East Asia to the slums and skyscrapers of New York City, the latter as seen through the eyes of the truant, Lee Harvey Oswald. Within a year of formation in 1947, the CIA committed what was probably its first major act. It involved an assassination using a designated patsy. Time and place: Bogota, April 9, 1948 - the victim, the youthful and charismatic presidential front-runner, Jorge Eliecer Gaitan. The entire scenario would be replicated 20 years later in Los Angeles with another youthful and charismatic presidential front-runner - right down to a patsy using self-hypnosis and connected to the California cult known as AMORC. And somewhere in between the two slayings was the assassination of JFK and the circuitous path to Dallas taken by patsy-in-the-making, Lee Harvey Oswald - the most intriguingly enigmatic alleged assassin of them all. Volume Two picks up where Volume One left off. Marguerite and young Lee have left New York City and returned to Lee's place of birth, New Orleans. Lee seems more like a "normal" kid than ever before. He gets into scrapes at school, joins clubs and keeps a weather eye on the wide world around him. But dig deeper and he is immersed in memorizing the Marines Manual and Das Kapital under the guidance of Captain Dave whom Lee has met in the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). Moreover, he is playing entrapment games with his friends. Has Captain Dave (David Ferrie) recruited Lee into a cadre of teenage anti-subversive agents in a program first floated by the CAP some seven years earlier? Was this program, which included teaching young recruits how to speak Russian, the seeds of what became the False Defector Program? In 1956, Lee is once again uprooted - this time moving to Forth Worth where he gets caught up in the riots brought about by forced integration pursuant to the Brown v Board of Education decision. Meanwhile, the Hungarian Uprising is waiting to explode in Europe. Also in 1956, Ruth Paine's sister, Sylvia Hoke finished work on a CIA project. The nature of the project is revealed here for the first time. Then in October, on his 17th birthday, Lee joins the Marines. We review his service record and explain some of the anomalies within it. Lastly, we have a look at the very spooky Albert Schweitzer College in Switzerland, which Lee had paid a $25 deposit to attend, but instead had headed to the Soviet Union. The Nazi and doomsday cult connections to the college are exposed, as are US government ties. This edition includes a bonus timeline at Appendix A. "

Providing the first global cultural context for the assassination of John F. Kennedy, this investigation into how United States intelligence agencies and other entities manipulated liberal religious groups and educational institutions for ideological, political, and economic gain during the Cold War exposes numerous previously misunderstood political operations. Including assassinations, these projects include those facilitated by Allen Dulles, John Foster Dulles, the U.S. State Department, the Office of Strategic Services and its successor, the CIA, and other individuals and groups. Focusing on the manipulations of key individuals in the American Unitarian Association, the Unitarian Service Committee, and the Unitarian-supported Albert Schweitzer College by covert American interests during the Cold War, this exposé asserts that an unwitting Lee Harvey Oswald—an asset and pawn of American intelligence—was the ideal scapegoat in a tragically successful conspiracy to murder President Kennedy.

The John F. Kennedy assassination has been described as the ultimate Cold War crime. And it is no wonder that more than eighty percent of the American public believe his death was the result of a complicated, sinister conspiracy. However, Seven Days in November 1963 is not a conspiracy book. It is based on historical facts and offers a fresh, in-depth interpretation of what really happened during seven crucial days in late November of 1963. Lee Harvey Oswald, President John F. Kennedy's cold-blooded assassin, and Jack Ruby, the man who shot and killed Oswald two days later, both had their own personal reasons for committing their crimes. In Seven Days in November 1963, author Edward J. Gibbons shows how blinding passion-mixed with misinformation and disinformation-led to the assassination and murder. Told from three perspectives-President Kennedy's, Oswald's, and Ruby's-Seven Days in November 1963 details each man's actions during those seven days and provides crucial historical background information to better understand the tensions of the Cold War and the attitudes and hatreds that led to each man's tragic death.

There are many reference works on the cold war, including The Cold War Encyclopedia (1996) and the recent Historical Dictionary of the Cold War (2000). These works put a crucial period of the twentieth century into perspective. They share an international focus, driven in part by the global nature of the cold war, the events that defined it, and the people who fought it. This new encyclopedia takes a different tack, focusing almost exclusively on American domestic events and issues and touching on international themes only when they are relevant to the U.S. scene.More than 700 entries are arranged alphabetically, beginning with Acheson, Dean, secretary of state from 1949 to 1953, and ending with Yippies, an anti-establishment DEGREESB radical element of the hippie movement. In between are entries on presidents and their opponents, civil rights groups and leaders, phrases, and definitions. The length of each entry (ranging from 100-2,500 words) reflects the importance of the subject or the depth of coverage needed. Acheson's boss, Harry Truman, earns just over four columns, while Truman's opponent in the infamous 1948 general election, Thomas Dewey, barely rates one column.Each entry is factual and concise. The entry on Martin Luther King Jr. mentions his early life and education, his adherence to Gandhi's policy of nonviolence, the March on Washington, and his assassination in Tennessee, avoiding the various controversies surrounding both King's life and death. Sometimes the generally objective tone of the work is missing, as when, for example, it defines com munism as paradoxical and self-defeating. Black-and-white photographs enhance the text, and the index is detailed.This volume is a worthy addition to the cold war reference shelf. Its coverage of people, places, and events that might be ignored in works with a more international perspective makes it a good starting point for anyone interested in an American focus.

Two men born with different backgrounds who were destined to collide in Dallas, Texas. One man came from a family of great wealth and power, while the other man came from a family who struggled for everything they ever had. One stood for peace while the other man stood for confusion and deceit. President John F. Kennedy had a dangerous goal in mind: end the Cold War in his lifetime. Lee Harvey Oswald was a pawn used by his employers, the Central Intelligence Agency, to stop President Kennedy from reaching his goal. This is a fictional re-telling of the events which led up President Kennedy's Assassination. It tells how President Kennedy fought to spread his message of world peace, and how the CIA stopped him at every turn.

Organized around the office of the president, this study focuses on American behavior at home and abroad from the Great Depression to the onset of the end of the Cold War, two key points during which America sought a re-definition of its proper relationship to the world. Domestically, American society continued the process of industrialization and urbanization that had begun in the 19th century. Urban growth accompanied industrialism, and more and more Americans lived in cities. Because of industrial growth and the consequent interest in foreign markets, the United States became a major world power. American actions as a nation, whether as positive attempts to mold events abroad or as negative efforts to enjoy material abundance in relative political isolation, could not help but affect the course of world history. Under President Hoover, the federal government was still a comparatively small enterprise; challenges of the next six decades would transform it almost beyond belief, touching in one way or another almost every facet of American life. Before the New Deal, few Americans expected the government to do anything for them. By the end of the Second World War and in the aftermath of the Great Depression, however, Americans had turned to Washington for help. Even the popular Reagan presidency of the 1980s, the most conservative since Hoover, would fail to undo the basic New Deal commitment to assist struggling Americans. There would be no turning back the clock, at home or abroad.

Making sense of Lee Harvey Oswald's politics is not easy and has understandably resulted in quite varied interpretations. In the aftermath of the assassination, the immediate reaction of many who knew him or knew about him was that Oswald could never have shot the president for political reasons. Oswald's Politics traces the political thought and behaviour of the historical Lee Harvey Oswald before the events of November 22, 1963. It presents an alternative explanatory model of Oswald to the psycho-historical one used by the Warren Commission and argues that his ideas and actions resulted more from environmental and intellectual influences than attitudinal factors. It examines the impact the political culture of the American South and events of the Cold War had on his outlook and places Oswald within the political world of the New Left. The book concludes with a discussion as to his possible involvement in the JFK assassination and motives, and provides a compendium of all his known political writings and other key documents. Such analysis is integral to any speculation about his possible guilt or innocence and the most important question of all, which the physical evidence is unlikely ever to answer: why was JFK killed?

In his inaugural speech, President Kennedy resolved to meet any hardship to assure the success of liberty. This resolve was severely tested in his short time in office. It was at the height of the Cold War and international politics dominated his presidency. Foreign affairs crises in Cuba, Laos, Berlin and Vietnam had to be handled. Meanwhile, at home, the civil rights movement was gaining momentum and Kennedy's hopes to introduce sweeping social reforms met frequent setbacks.

From the acclaimed author of JFK and Vietnam comes a book that uncovers the government's role in the Kennedy assassination more clearly than any previous inquiry. What was the extent of the CIA's involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald? Why was Oswald's file tampered with before the assassination of John F. Kennedy? And why did significant documents from that file mysteriously disappear? Oswald and the CIA answers these questions, not with theories, but with information from the primary sources themselves—ex-agents, officials, and secret records. To look at the Oswald file is to look at the most sensitive CIA operation of the Cold War. The story is as alarming as it is tragic; the lies and manipulations it reveals led directly to Kennedy's murder. Oswald and the CIA is a gripping journey to the darkest corners of the CIA.

When Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy fell out of favor with the Democratic Roosevelt administration, due to appeasement, the political baton in the Kennedy family went to Joe Jr. He was killed in World War II in 1944 and, from that time on, Joe Sr. focused all his attentions on his second son, John F. Kennedy. The young Kennedy experienced some celebrity as a war hero and having written a modest bestseller, JFK was keen to pick up the baton. He was a willing and enthusiastic candidate who, following a life in the military, was anxious to make his mark on Congress. Having served as a Senator, he found himself in a race for the White House in 1960 with Republican, Richard Nixon, appearing on the first televised Presidential Election debates. It was a close run race, but JFK was assured of the Presidency with less than 100,000 votes to spare. He took up office during a difficult period in US political history, where his policies on the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Civil Rights, and war in Vietnam were much scrutinized. However, behind the Hollywood-style life that he and his wife, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, portrayed hid some dark secrets. Tragedies and health issues plagued the Kennedy family, and JFK’s less-than-discreet romantic liaisons, were possibly a threat to national security at various points during the Kennedy administration. Was JFK’s assassination a conspiracy, or was Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone when he shot the President on November 22, 1963?

The Kennedy assassination has produced a number of conspiracy theories based largely upon intriguing questions, speculation, and inference. Thousands of books and articles have been written about the assassination with a large majority of the published material arguing for a conspiracy of one kind or another. However, a relatively small volume of literature has been written from a scholarly and academic perspective. The Faces of Lee Harvey Oswald provides the first comprehensive scholarly analysis of Lee Harvey's Oswald's role in the JFK assassination. Scott P. Johnson objectively examines the various narratives of Lee Harvey Oswald created by researchers and authors over the last fifty years. He finds that at first glance any theory related to Oswald’s role appears as convincing as the next, particularly when researchers carefully select information that only advances their preferred theory. In reality, however, Oswald’s role in the assassination offers little certainty when one looks at the mystery surrounding Oswald’s life and death as well as the complexity and ambiguity surrounding the murder of President Kennedy. Rather than putting forth a single theory, Johnson lays out the known facts against each theory and allows the readers to make their own decision.

Living in a Dallas boardinghouse, separated from his wife, Marina, and their two children, Lee Harvey Oswald feels completely powerless and desperate. But on November 19, 1963, he sees two articles in the Dallas Times Herald; one on the front page in which President Kennedy calls for the overthrow of Castro in Cuba, and the other announcing the president’s visit to Dallas this coming Friday. This, Oswald believes, is the opportunity for which he has been waiting. In Seven Days in November 1963, author Edward J. Gibbons presents a fictionalized account of Kennedy’s assassination, an event that has posed a tragic, complex puzzle to most of the American public for five decades. Gibbons fits the pieces of that puzzle into a plausible, understandable story that takes place during the course of seven days in Dallas in late November 1963—a time of heightened Cold War tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union, focusing on Cuba. Seven Days in November 1963 tells how Lee Harvey Oswald, the president’s assassin, and Jack Ruby, the man who would kill Oswald two days later on live national television, both had their own twisted, delusional motives for committing their acts of violence. It also explores how the investigation into the assassination was compromised by American intelligence agencies that omitted vital information to protect themselves from responsibility or blame for the president’s death, thus leading to decades of confusion and conspiracy theories about what actually happened.

More than thirty years after his first investigation of the Nazi underground Peter Levenda has returned again and again to his quest for the truth about the true character of the Nazi cult and the people and political movements it has influenced in the decades since the end of World War II. The wide sweep of this investigation moves from a Ku Klux Klan headquarters in Reading, Pennsylvania to the New York City office of the Palestine Liberation Organization; from the apartment of a notorious neo-Nazi leader to an Islamic boarding school—headquarters of the man who ordered the Bali Bombings. When Levenda uncovered the existence of a Nazi underworld in Asia, the nexus of religion, politics, terrorism and occult beliefs was revealed to be the real domain of the threat to global security. Meticulously researched—from both archival material and declassified intelligence agency files, to personal interviews and investigations undertaken in Asia, Europe and Latin America—The Hitler Legacy is the story of how the mistakes of the 20th century have come home to roost in the 21st. This book will challenge the conventional thinking about such subjects as the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist terrorism and even about the alleged death of one of history's most infamous killers—Adolf Hitler.
