About this book
A stinging attack of the laughable and sometimes sinister world of modern day conspiracy theories, with a new chapter on the current controversy surrounding Obama's birth. Examining conspiracy theories from the past 100 years, Aaronovitch explores why people are so ready to believe in them, and the dangers involved. Covers Pearl Harbor, the 9/11 truth movement, and that perennial favourite, the moon landings.
Did Neil Armstrong really set foot on the moon? Was the United States government responsible for the 11 September attacks? Should we doubt the accidental nature of Diana's death? This title demolishes the absurd and sinister conspiracy theories of the last 100 years.
