I disagree with rene1951. While this could, at a long stretch, be classified loosely as Sci Fi, this is more an exercise in political/historical speculation using what has actually occurred to discover possibly could have followed. As such, in the afterward, the author gives a combination of his reasoning with a bibliography. Everything prior to Dallas is real, everything afterward is a combination of rearranging historical events/speeches/conversations/etc and speculation. The result is a fascinating look at a timeline that wasn't. A must for alternate history buffs and real history buffs alike.

Interesting speculation to be filed under the heading of alternative history. Greenfield's "counterfactuals" are based on deductions arrived at from talking to contemporaries and otherwise solid research.
