'Peter Knight has done the impossible - he has written a very interesting and readable book on the Kennedy Assassination. Comprehensive though never obsessive, sharply analytic but not cranky or opinionated, and written in a lively yet authoritative style, The Kennedy Assassination will prove indispensable not only to students and researchers of American politics and culture over the last half century, but also to the general reader.' Richard H. King, School of American and Canadian Studies, University of Nottingham 'Peter Knight's book on the Kennedy assassination is the best available source we have on the most symptomatic event of postwar American history. Encyclopedic in scope, elegant and clear in its execution, wide-ranging in its assessment of the history and representational aftermath of that dark day in Dallas, this will be the "go-to" book on the Kennedy assassination for some time to come.'
