Not another conspiracy theory; yet, this does make me wonder if people will ever cease to find new angles from which to examine and write about the Kennedy assassination (and the publication date of the is book is hardly accidental).
"Minutaglio and Davis aren't interested in sifting the cold ashes of JFK assassination theories. "Our aim," they state, "is to introduce and then connect the outsize characters and the singular climate in a city that many blamed for killing a president." Dallas residents often carried a chip on their shoulder, resenting the belief that their home was just a jumped-up cow and oil town. But cattle and oil produced a lot of money. So when many of the city's leading men decided in 1959 to wage war on the northeastern liberals, big-city Catholics, commie appeasers, and civil rights agitators they knew were destroying America almost as fast as Medicare, the effect was felt nationwide. [...]
By brushing right past any theories about what shadowy cabal or band of assassins was behind JFK's killing, Minutaglio and Davis go beyond the stream of new books that toss cold water on such X-Files fare (see Vincent Bugliosi's Reclaiming History and Larry Sabato's The Kennedy Half Century) in order to point the finger at an even more disquieting target. Nowhere do the authors say that furies stirred up by some of Dallas's leaders were responsible for Oswald killing the president. But what this book strongly suggests is that while words can't kill, they can certainly help to pull the trigger."
