Books 71 - 80
HSCA [House Select Committee on Assassinations] - Volume 7 - Appendix to Hearings
US - House of Representatives
1979

Volume VII of the HSCA's Appendices contains the reports of the HSCA medical panel and its firearms panel.
The medical panel affirmed the Warren Commission's conclusions regarding the direction from which shots came (behind and above) and endorsed the single bullet theory, with one dissenting member. However, basic findings of the autopsy doctors were disputed by the medical panel, including the location of wounds in Kennedy's body. In the 1990s, formerly-secret medical testimony taken by HSCA staffers showed that many autopsy witnesses gave information which directly contradicted the autopsy doctors and the photographs, and the HSCA misrepresented their views in this report (apparently the medical panel members never saw these staff interviews).
The much shorter firearms panel report includes information on the Kennedy, Tippit, and Oswald shooting, and includes many photographic exhibits.

     HSCA [House Select Committee on Assassinations] - Volume 8 - Appendix to Hearings
US - House of Representatives
1979

Volume VIII of the HSCA's Appendices contains the reports on the acoustics evidence (using a recording made from a police motorcycle with its microphone stuck open), as well as reports on fingerprint and handwriting evidence.
The HSCA's acoustics findings became the main scientific basis for its "probable conspiracy" finding. The analysis was subsequently disputed by a panel appointed by the National Academy of Sciences, but this rebuttal itself has been recently challenged by scientist D.B. Thomas in an article published in Science and Justice.

HSCA [House Select Committee on Assassinations] - Volume 9 - Appendix to Hearings

US - House of Representatives
1979

Volume IX of the HSCA's Appendices contains reports on organized crime. While the HSCA report was equivocal on the source of the JFK conspiracy, Chief Counsel Blakey went on to co-write a book which charged that Kennedy was killed by organized crime. Much of the analysis relates to Jack Ruby, whose organized crime connections were analyzed in great depth compared with the Warren Commission, which avoided Ruby's mob connections. The organized-crime link to Oswald is much weaker, consisting largely of his uncle's connection to the Marcello crime family.

HSCA [House Select Committee on Assassinations] - Volume 10 - Appendix to Hearings

US - House of Representatives
1979

Volume X of the HSCA's Appendices contains staff reports on anti-Castro Cuban exiles, CIA assassination plots against Fidel Castro, and the story of Rose Cheramie. It includes the HSCA's analysis of the "retaliation theory" promoted in articles by Jack Anderson.

HSCA [House Select Committee on Assassinations] - Volume 11 - Appendix to Hearings

US - House of Representatives
1979

Volume XI of the HSCA's Appendices contains staff reports on the Warren Commission and its relationship with federal intelligence agencies, which withheld important information from the Commission. This volume also contains reports on the planning for the Texas trip and an investigation of the assassination apparently conducted by the U.S. military.

HSCA [House Select Committee on Assassinations] - Volume 12 - Appendix to Hearings

US - House of Representatives
1979

Volume XII of the HSCA's Appendices contains reports on Dealey Plaza witnesses, Oswald-Tippit associates, U.S. defectors, and Yuri Nosenko, along with a manuscript written by George de Mohrenschildt. It also contains a bibliography on the JFK assassination.

"I am a patsy"

George De Morenschildt
1977

Jeanne de Mohrenschildt gave the HSCA committee a copy of a manuscript called I Am a Patsy! I Am a Patsy! which George de Mohrenschildt had recently written about his relationship with his "dear, dead friend" Oswald, wherein he said that the Lee Oswald he knew, while capable of violence and petty meanness, would not have been the sort of person to have killed John F. Kennedy. In part this judgment was based on de Mohrenschildt's estimation of Oswald's political views and Kennedy's liberal ideas. The memoir has never been published as a trade book but has been available online since the entire typescript was published as an appendix in the HSCA report

Il Complotto
[La controinchiesta segreta dei Kennedy sull'omicidio di JFK]

Hepburn James
edited by Stefania Limiti
2012

Italian book.
Based on a book published in 1968, it was the inside story of the assassination of President John Kennedy. Although borrowing heavily from published critics of the Warren Commission Report, the book describes the roots of the Cold War, the linkage between large corporate and banking interests, the ever-growing American intelligence apparatus, and the international petroleum cartels that were lined up with a bevy of military brass and Mafia chieftains against JFK. A combination of these powerful interests called "The Committee" coordinated all aspects of the murder, from setting the time and place of the shooting to the recruitment of the gunmen and the coverup of the conspiracy afterward. The bottom line was that enemies of JFK collaborated with the CIA to erase the perceived threat to their interests by John and Robert Kennedy. Heavy stuff for 1968. So incendiary, in fact, that importation of the book through Canada was squelched, allegedly at the instigation of the FBI. That book wasn't just another book about the assassination conspiracy; it bristled with restricted information about U.S. intelligence agencies, the White House, global business, and military and political affairs that had to have come from a knowlegdeable source, in this case, French intelligence. It also represented the surreptitious intrusion by those in French government circles into American politics, namely, the 1968 presidential elections.

Image of an assassination : a new look at the Zapruder film

Zapruder Abraham

DVD

When Dallas dress manufacturer Abraham Zapruder began shooting home movies of President John F.Kennedy motorcade on November 22,1963, he thought he was capturing a moment he could share with his grandchildren. As it turned out, Zapruder captured a ghastly image that would be seen by the whole world and become one of the most important documents of the 20th century.

Impossible : The case against Lee Harvey Oswald (Volume One)

Krush Barry
2012

Conspiracy book (Volume One out of three).
From the back cover :
" 'Impossible:The case against Lee Harvey Oswald' demonstrates, conclusively, that there was  a conspiracy to kill President Kennedy. Because of this, The Case against Lee Harvey Oswald, predicated on Oswald being a lone assassin, must inevitably fall.
However, many will claim this book either distorts or omit information. To defend the book's integrity, the author is offering 25,000$ to any person that can successfully refute its claims before a virtual jury of twelve arbitrators. This offer is referred as 'The JFK Challenge'.
Until The Challenge is accepted, you can rely on the main thesis of this book : that the Case Against Oswald is impossible. Once you know the real truth of the Kennedy assassination, you will know why certain individuals must keep that truth from you."
