"Our most provocative scholar of American power" reveals the forces behind the assassination of JFK - and their continuing influence over our world (David Talbot, Salon).

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald. Shortly after, Oswald himself was killed. These events led many to believe there was a far greater plan at work, with a secret cabal of powerful men manipulating the public and shaping US policies both at home and abroad for their own interests.

But no one could imagine how right they were.

Beneath the orderly façade of the American government, there lies a complex network, only partly structural, linking Wall Street influence, corrupt bureaucracy, and the military-industrial complex. Here lies the true power of the American empire. This behind-the-scenes web is unelected, unaccountable, and immune to popular resistance. Peter Dale Scott calls this entity the deep state, and he has made it his life's work to write the history of those who manipulate our government from the shadows. Since the aftermath of World War II, the deep state's power has grown unchecked, and nowhere has it been more apparent than that day at Dealey Plaza.

In this landmark volume, Scott traces how culpable elements in the CIA and FBI helped prepare for the assassination, and how the deep state continues to influence our politics today.

As timely and important as ever in the current chaotic political climate, Dallas '63 is a reality-shattering, frightening exposé not of those who govern us - but of those who govern those who govern us.

This is a horrible book to listen to on audible

This is not really a story as much as it is a reading of a bibliography. The narrator reads a bunch of memo number and never really explains what the memo’s mean. It sound like 1-30-59, Oswald and Smith Memo GHY146-L7-EIEIO. There are so many dates and memo numbers listed all in a row that the story is totally lost. The story is obviously interesting. But the presentation is horrendous. I could not even listen to it and gave up.

An interesting take on the JFK assassination

With talk of the deep state in recent years, the subject matter interested me. Seems well researched, though I'm the type who doesn't believe in these sorts of things without evidence. Still, great effort from both author and narrator. I'd recommend this to fans of politics.
