Donald Freed & Mark Lane

Novel written by Donald Freed and Mark Lane.
Written in the form of novel, it details the three months leading up to the JFK Assissination, and describes a high-level conspiracy involving Texas oil interests, the Military and Intelligence agencies, and incorporates Lane's own research as well as elements from Jim Garrison's New Orleans investigation of the Assassination and the plot outlined in the book "Farewell America."
It details a trained assissination team supervised by a "technician" who is overseen by a CIA case officer who reports to high ranking Intelligence officer. The novel also includes an Oswald impersonator and is well-written using a series of scenes by dates, as if it were a play or screen-play.

Il successore

Burdick Eugene

IL SUCCESSORE is the Italian version of the book "The 480", a political fiction novel by Eugene Burdick (1964).

The plot evolves around the political turmoil after John F. Kennedy assassination in 1963. In the novel, a fictitious charismatic character, John Thatch, an engineer, is seeking nomination for the Republican Party candidate at 1964 presidential elections. He is described as being contaminated with the "political virus". A handful of political professionals is promoting his nomination, in confrontation with the Party establishment. There exist apparent parallels between Thatch and Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., a write-in hero at New Hampshire primary.
The novel criticizes the socio-political effects on society at large from the use of computers to run massive simulations, which predict the public reaction to certain (proposed) political moves before implementing them. Such simulations make it easy to manipulate the public consciousness.
The 480 in the title denotes the number of groups (by party affiliation, socioeconomic status, location, origin, etc.) that the computer simulation uses to classify the American electorate. The full list of these is reproduced in the Appendix, claimed by the author to be the true list used by the Simulmatics Corporation (real name) in Senator John F. Kennedy's Presidential campaign in 1960.
The Simulmatics Corporation was created by MIT Professor Ithiel de Sola Pool, who provided a non-fiction backup to "The 480" in "Candidates, Issues, and Strategies: A Computer Simulation of the 1960 Presidential Election," MIT Press, 1964 (with co-authors Robert P. Abelson and Samuel L. Popkin). They built their model from 130,000 archived interviews in Gallup and Roper polls over a ten-year period. Based on its output, they advised Kennedy that he would benefit from a strong civil rights stand and that he had nothing to lose, and much to gain, by attacking religious bigotry and dealing frankly with his Catholicism.
