The JFK Assassination Debates
Professor Michael Kurtz also wrote Crime of the Century: The Kennedy Assassination from an Historian’s Perspective and The Challenging of America: 1920-1945.
Professor Michael Kurtz talked with his history class about his book, The JFK Assassination Debates: Lone Gunman versus Conspiracy, published by the University Press of Kansas. He outlined the controversies regarding the assassination of President Kennedy using many photographs. He argued that it is unlikely we will ever know the full truth about the assassination because much of the critical evidence in the case was mishandled. He described both the lone gunman and the conspiracy theories, although he personally believes there was a conspiracy. After his lecture, Professor Kurtz answered students' questions.
