The second Oswald by Richard H Popkin( file )
19 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in English and French and held by 945 libraries worldwide
Who killed Kennedy? Many keen minds have their doubts about the findings of the Warren Commission. Could Oswald have fired 3 shots in 5.6 seconds with the inaccurate rifle he had - and hit a moving target? Did he even kill patrolman Tippit (the bullets in the body were smaller than the barrel of his revolver)? Was the brown paper bag made only to attract attention? Was Bullet No. 399 a plant? Suppose there was a Second Oswald- a man very similar physically and an expert marksman? Such a man was seen both before and at the time of the murder. Was there a rifleman on the knoll as well as at the Book Depository window? If so this was one of the greatest - and most successful conspiracies of modern times

Skeptical philosophy for everyone by Richard H Popkin( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 586 libraries worldwide
An outstanding introduction to the problems of philosophy by two eminent philosophers in a lucid, informal, & very accessible discussion of Western thought. Annotation. Casting skepticism in a central role, this history of Western philosophy looks at the efforts of major thinkers seeking to overcome skeptical challenges. The role of skepticism in producing new theoretical positions is explicated, and the influence of contemporary skeptics examined. The relative merits of skeptical claims are also debated. Popkin taught philosophy at Washington University. This lucid, informal, and very accessible discussion of Western thought takes the unique approach of interpreting skepticism -- i.e., doubts about knowledge claims and the criteria for making such claims -- as an important stimulus for the development of philosophy. The authors argue that practically every great thinker from the time of the Greeks to the present has produced theories designed to forestall or refute skepticism: from Plato to Moore and Wittgenstein. The influence of and responses to such 20th-century skeptics such as Russell and Derrida are also discussed critically. Popkin and Stroll review each major theory of philosophy chronologically and then further organize these theories into their respective subject areas: metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of religion. This is an outstanding introduction to the problems of philosophy by two eminent philosophers with a gift for presenting the history of ideas in a very lively and clear style
Messianic revolution : radical religious politics to the end of the second millennium by David S Katz( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 576 libraries worldwide
In this study, two historians explore that tradition, showing how the beliefs of many fringe, distressed, disenfranchised, or purely mystical Christians and Jews have been transmitted across a millennium. Professors David Katz and Richard Popkin's Messianic Revolution offers a strong and lucid explanation of why and how this apocalyptic strain found especially fertile ground in the New World, and it throws new light on the many strands of biblical interpretation, both Jewish and Christian, that are woven into this complex history

Richard H. Popkin (1923-2005) transformed the study of the history of philosophy in the second half of the twentieth century.

The Legacies of Richard Popkin provides a broad overview of Popkina (TM)s work and demonstrates the connections between the many topics he wrote about.
