Conspiracy Theories: Real-life Stories of Paranoia, Secrecy and Intrigue by David Southwell
Brace yourself for a hundred of the strangest, most convincing and bizarre conspiracy theories you'll ever read. Handily arranged into themed chapters (from Extraterrestrials to Celebrities, via Technology and Politics), it's the result of meticulous research into the frontiers of paranoia, secrecy, intrigue and outlandishness from around the globe. To help you keep track of all the terrifying organisations that may or may not rule the world from their hidden offices and secret bunkers, each entry features the basic facts, the theories, the likely and unlikely suspects, and the author's personal conclusion as to what might be the explanation for each event. There is also a complete guide to the groups that are commonly blamed for all the world's ills, from NATO and the NSA to the Illuminati, along with an authoritative glossary of conspiracy-speak.
