If we are to be serious about historical revisionism, we need to have explanations built on the best facts available. If we ignore basic facts and instead present the facts as we would prefer, we are creating a work of fiction – which this book resembles a great deal, writes Joseph Green.

Roads to Memphis (PBS)

Any serious student of the King case should ignore both this program and the book by Hampton Sides. Instead, read The 13th Juror, concludes Jim DiEugenio.

"First of all, let's talk about what you won't find in this book. It's not about how extraterrestrials are abducting human beings, or the Apollo moon landing being a colossal hoax perpetrated by NASA, or that Barack Obama somehow is not a natural-born American citizen. I leave these speculations to others, not that I take them seriously." [from the opening chapter]

The 13th Juror

This is a valuable book to have. Between its covers it proves by a preponderance of the evidence – and maybe more than that – how Ray was set up, and then how King was actually killed. It also shows why the media avoided the trial, and why Ray was not allowed to have his criminal case reopened, writes Jim DiEugenio.

John Larry Ray & Lyndon Barsten, Truth at Last

In a book like this, a lot of the credibility must come from the reader's trust in the author(s). Unfortunately, that is not forthcoming here, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Elegy for Philip Melanson

Looking at the totality of Philip Melanson's work (and I am leaving out some of it), there are very few people who contributed as much or as at the high level that he did, writes Jim DiEugenio.

William Turner, Rearview Mirror

For me, and for most of his longtime admirers, the highlights of this distinguished and fascinating book were the chapters on the Garrison inquiry and the one on the Robert Kennedy murder, writes Jim DiEugenio.
