Praise from a Future Generation is
now an e-book!
Praise from a Future Generation is the story of the grassroots response to the official invesgitation of President Kennedy's assassination.
The Warren Commission conducted that official probe, but public opinion polls have consistently shown that few Americans believe its conclusion that there was no conspiracy. How could that be?
The main reason is the work of the earliest Commission critics. Their unsung efforts were acts of true patriotism, but today, few people know their names.
This book is their story.
Praise from a Future Generation is published by Wings Press.
"There are in our midst exceptional people...who have been making no less than heroic efforts to unravel the answers to how, why, and what-for John F. Kennedy was felled...to them belongs the praise of future generations."
—The Minority of One, 1966
In September 1964 the Warren Commission wrapped up a ten-month investigation into the assassination of President Kennedy by declaring that the shocking crime was the singular work of a hapless loner named Lee Harvey Oswald.
The Commission's finding ignited a controversy that rages to this very day. Praise from a Future Generation, by John Kelin, is the story of the "first generation" critics of this official explanation.
Two months after publishing a single-volume report, the government issued a 26-volume set of Hearings and Exhibits (left). These 26 volumes of raw data became the focus of intensive study by a handful of self-selected American citizens. They found countless omissions and distortions between this official record, and the single-volume account known popularly as the Warren Report.
Some of these citizen-sleuths traveled to Dallas to get their own first-hand accounts of what had happened. They learned shocking new details, and uncovered a frightening pattern of intimidation and fear.
All of the critics reached an inescapable conclusion: there had been a conspiracy. Praise from a Future Generation recounts the efforts of these critics to be heard by an indifferent American media, and documents the ominous indications that an unseen opponent was reacting to their work.
