  • Author: Sifakis, Carl
  • Description: Encyclopedia of Assassinations is the most comprehensive handbook on over 400 assassinations, attempts, and plots against political figures. The narrative entries detail history’s most turbulent moments, including the date, location, and full description of each incident, as well as biographical information about the victim and assassin and the circumstances surrounding each historical event. Here are: Jesse James: Outlaw killed by Bob Ford in 1882 Ian Gow: Conservative member of the British Parliament killed by a car bomb in 1990 Franz Ferdinand: Archduke and heir to the Austrian throne killed by Gavrilo Princip in 1914 John F. Kennedy: American president killed by Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963 Rajiv Gandhi: Prime Minister of India killed by an unidentified bomber in 1991 Ernesto “Che” Guevara: Revolutionary killed by Bolivian forces in 1967 Abraham Lincoln: American president killed by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 And hundreds more! This encyclopedia’s illustrations, bibliography, appendix grouping the assassinations by country, and further readings turn it into an essential reference for history teachers, students, crime buffs, and those who are curious about “the most notorious acts of their kind.” Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home..
