Lisa Pease, A Lie Too Big to Fail: The Real History of the Robert Kennedy Assassination

Written by Michael Le Flem

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.

John R. Bohrer, The Revolution of Robert Kennedy

Written by James DiEugenio

The best volume on Robert Kennedy I have read since Arthur Schlesinger’s two volume set in 1978. If you want to know about Bobby Kennedy’s life, the Schlesinger book is your choice. But if you want to know who RFK was in his last years, this is the book to read. No politician I know of ever did or said these kinds of things at home and abroad, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Larry Tye, Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon

Written by James DiEugenio

Because of its innumerable textual and sourcing problems, Tye's book is neither worth reading nor buying, concludes Jim DiEugenio, who is prompted to muse:  "Why did the author write the book? Only he can answer that question".

Fernando Faura, The Polka Dot File on the Robert F. Kennedy Killing

Written by James DiEugenio

With this book, we finally have a record of one of the very, very few mainstream reporters who actually delved into one of the assassinations of the sixties. Who tried to do an honest job and who actually tried to follow the evidence wherever it was headed, writes Jim DiEugenio.

David C. Heymann, Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story

Written by Lisa Pease

While I dislike intensely what [Heymann has] written, I can imagine the situation from his point of view. In his mind, he's a crafty guy who figured out a way to make a great living, while breaking, to my knowledge, no enforceable laws to do so. That he broke all laws of decency and historical faithfulness, if you put yourself in his shoes, is beside the point, writes Lisa Pease.

The Second Dallas

Written by James DiEugenio

Mazzucco at least tried to make a documentary on the RFK case to bring to the public some troubling facts. But today, that really is not good enough, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Robert Joling, J.D. & Philip Van Praag, An Open and Shut Case

Written by Lisa Pease

The book is certainly easy to read, and clearly presented. So long as you understand that some of the material is incorrect ... and outdated ..., there is still much to recommend here, writes Lisa Pease.

Bobby: A Review

Written by Philip Sheridan

Estevez had a huge and magnificent historical subject. For all the liberties he has taken, and for reasons stated above, he didn't do it justice, concludes Philip Sheridan.

The Curious Case of Dan Moldea

Written by James DiEugenio

The methods and approaches of his are highly dubious, as Jim DiEugenio demonstrates in this review of Moldea's apologia for the LAPD.
