Lifton's theory is that wounds were altered between Dallas and Bethesda. He provides credible proof that this could have happened. The pictures in this book only enhance the text and help to clarify the proof he offers.
There are many theories floating around in book form regarding the murder of JFK. This is one theory. However,I find this to be a believable theory. I believe this theory offers a good explanation of the events, particularly the discrepencies in the autopsy photographs. Rather than including everyone that had anything to do with JFK in a cover up, Lifton limits the number of people he includes. This makes it that much more believable in my opinion. (Too many people involved in a cover up and it's no longer a secret right?!) I particularly appreciated the fact that there were new to me pictures included in this book.
I would suggest that for people who are interested in studying the JFK assassination, this book is one that they should read.
Lifton was one of the early Warren Report critics; the book was not published until 1980, but Lifton's research efforts began immediately after Life published frames from the Zapruder film. As a graduate student in physics, Lifton knew that a shot from behind would not have caused the violent "back and to the left" motion of President Kennedy's head following the moment of impact. That was the impetus of his work. It quickly became a passion that interrupted and eventually ended his graduate studies (it's pretty difficult to go through the 26 nonindexed volumes of evidence in the Warren Report while pursuing a graduate degree in physics). Unlike some researchers, he was never in this for the money; in fact, I don't know how he managed to support himself over the 15 years or so he devoted to this case.Read more ›
