The nation's foremost prosecutor takes on the most important murder case in American history For over forty years the truth about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has been obscured. Now Vincent Bugliosi, author of the biggest selling true-crime book of all time, finally releases us from a crippling distortion of American history. Twenty years in the making, Reclaiming History resolves, beyond any reasonable doubt, every lingering question surrounding the Kennedy Assassination. Bugliosi confronts and destroys the theories that have grown up since the assassination, revealing their selective use of evidence, flawed logic, and outright deceptions. Providing a powerful and unprecedented narrative of events and a biography of the assassin, he confirms the oft-challenged findings of the Warren Commission -- Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, shot and killed President John F. Kennedy -- and exposes every conspiracy theory as a fraud on the American public. A narrative compendium of fact, forensic evidence, reexamination of key witnesses and common sense, Reclaiming History surpasses all other books on the subject. With his irresistible logic, command of the evidence, and startling inferences, Bugliosi draws on his legendary skills as a prosecutor to shed fresh and definitive light on this long American nightmare.

The nation's foremost prosecutor takes on the most important murder case in American history

For over forty years the truth about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has been obscured. Now Vincent Bugliosi, author of the biggest selling true-crime book of all time, finally releases us from a crippling distortion of American history.

Twenty years in the making, Reclaiming History resolves, beyond any reasonable doubt, every lingering question surrounding the Kennedy Assassination. Bugliosi confronts and destroys the theories that have grown up since the assassination, revealing their selective use of evidence, flawed logic, and outright deceptions. Providing a powerful and unprecedented narrative of events and a biography of the assassin, he confirms the oft-challenged findings of the Warren Commission -- Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, shot and killed President John F. Kennedy -- and exposes every conspiracy theory as a fraud on the American public.

A narrative compendium of fact, forensic evidence, reexamination of key witnesses and common sense, Reclaiming History surpasses all other books on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“ What Bugliosi has done is a public service…in the arguing Bugliosi truly shines…this book should be applauded.”  New York Times Book Review
“He doesn’t abide lapses in logic…he exhilarates the reader with rat-a-tat annihilations of others’ false premises and shaky inferences.”  Atlantic
“With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America. It is a book for the ages.”  Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Destined to be the most significant challenge (save the Warren Report) to conspiracy theories, Bugliosi’s study will provoke controversy and debate.”  Booklist (starred review)
