The assassination of political, religious and military leaders, often dictators, is frequently seen as the short cut to solving a particular problem. The author takes issue with this argument. Examining a series of linked assassinations together with their causes and effects, he seeks to demonstrate that in many cases the killings have produced unforeseen and unintended consequences that all too often result in the opposite result to that desired.

His case studies, arranged intriguingly in pairs, cover such diverse characters as Julius Caesar and Thomas à Becket, Gandhi and Jesus Christ, Tsar Alexander II and Abraham Lincoln, Michael Collins and Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson, and Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.

This is an absorbing, controversial and informative study.

Truly an abysmal, pathetic work of a submediocre author. No excuses for this indidivual. Bullet for John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy dramatically altered history, but that would require effort, work and cogent thought on the author's part - - not a part of the deal. Minus many stars.
