The Jakarta Method by Vincent Bevins

Written by

Henry Wallace, JFK, and The Nation

Written by
Jeff Carter examines John Nichols’ new book, The Fight For The Soul of the Democratic Party, in light of Donald Gibson’s ground-breaking book, Battling Wall Street: The Kennedy Presidency, on the Kennedy administration and its New Deal/progressive concepts. Carter compares how both Wallace and Kennedy publicly faced their critics in the media with respect to these progressive policies.
After engaging with Matt Stevenson of CounterPunch in the past by countering his Vietnam myths, Jim DiEugenio now confronts a recent article of his referencing Mafia involvement in the election of 1960 and uses the opportunity to expose the lies from the underlying source, Double Cross.
Paul Bleau reviews Gary Hill’s new book, The Other Oswald: A Wilderness of Mirrors, and assesses the new evidence that suggests Robert Webster and Lee Harvey Oswald both had links to the MKULTRA mind control program. As Gary reveals his evaluation of the JFK assassination after more than 50 years of research, Paul breaks down the good and the bad in his overall case.
Since Bob Dylan used the same title for his new song on the JFK assassination as the Stanley Marks’ 1967 book, Murder Most Foul!, Rob Couteau reviews this little known and hard to find book and surveys the life and work of its author.
In part 2 of this essay, Jim DiEugenio continues his review of Donald McGovern’s Murder Orthodoxies by tracing the further trajectory of the Marilyn Monroe/Kennedys mythology as it soars into outer space, concluding that the authors of this hoax created a three-ring Barnum and Bailey circus by supporting and aggrandizing each other.
Jim DiEugenio reviews Donald McGovern’s important work on Marilyn Monroe's untimely death, Murder Orthodoxies, and, in part 1 of this essay, examines the launching of the mythology surrounding her alleged relationships with John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy and the money angle associated with promoting this mythology.
Jim DiEugenio assesses the historical accuracy of James Patterson and Cynthia Fagen’s The House of Kennedy and discovers the shoddy research and tabloid style of the book make it unfit for reading. Their idea is to present the Kennedy clan as a bunch of useless wastrels, whose two most prominent political representatives were murdered by lone nuts. Therefore, their implication is that these murders have no political or historic importance.
O’Neill’s book on the Tate/LaBianca murders “does an excellent job in exposing the unethical tactics that Bugliosi and the DA’s office indulged itself in to make sure they would ram the perpetrators into the gas chamber,” writes Jim DiEugenio.

Mark Shaw, Denial of Justice

Written by
Shaw's book is largely a combination of recycling Kilgallen’s biographical material, his past writing about Melvin Belli, and trying to sell the reader on his remarkably unconvincing ideas about a Mob hit on JFK.
“A balanced, engaging, fascinating look at the slimy underbelly of the American power structure and the hired guns of the media who cover up for them,” writes Michael Le Flem.

John Newman, Countdown to Darkness, Volume 2

Written by
In my opinion, Newman offers one of the best medium-length treatments of the Congo crisis I have read, writes Jim DiEugenio.
The author’s narrative gifts are as pronounced as her investigative acumen. And with this book as her lifetime achievement on a case that still remains relatively obscure in light of the JFK assassination, she will likely establish herself as the preeminent authority on the subject for years to come, avers Michael Le Flem.
