Item #: 1006349

Included FREE with U.S. Academic Core and Government, Politics, and Law subscriptions.

The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 is a public law passed by the United States Congress. It directed the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to create a collection of records known as the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection. The JFK Act stated that the collection should consist of all U.S. government documents relating to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, including any state or local law enforcement materials. Furthermore, the Act required that each assassination record is made public no later than 25 years after the date of enactment unless the President of the United States has reason to withhold the documents. In October of 2017, President Donald Trump directed the National Archives to release materials that were previously withheld. These consisted of nearly 50,000 documents, including more than 19,000 additional documents with the latest release in April 2018. The newly available information contained FBI, CIA, and other agency documents. Some documents will remain classified until 2021.

These newly released documents are now available to the public. HeinOnline has organized and indexed this material to make it easy to navigate and use. Also included in this collection are books, hearings, other related works, and scholarly articles on this topic.
