THE ASSASSINS by Robert J. Donovan


Email this review


The White House correspondent for the Herald Tribune writes an absorbing study of the reasons behind the attempts on the lives of seven presidents. Donovan's interest started with Collazo's attack on Truman in 1950 and as he plumbs the psychology of the assassins, interesting political facets come to life too- for the results of their actions were not always what had been expected. And from Booth on, there is the conclusion that all were unbalanced, for which we may be thankful.
