Reclaiming Parkland details the failed attempt of Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman - cofounder of the production company Playtone - to make Vincent Bugliosi’s mammoth book about the Kennedy assassination, Reclaiming History, into a miniseries. It exposes the questionable origins of Reclaiming History in a dubious mock trial for cable television, in which Bugliosi played the role of an attorney prosecuting Lee Harvey Oswald for murder, and how this formed the basis for the epic tome.

Starting with the assassination of President Kennedy, America is in rapid decline according to this author. However, I wonder how something can be in decline when it was never great according to DiEugenio. I disliked the entire philosophy thrown on these pages. I wish I never made this purchase and do not recommend the book.
