Voodoo Histories: How Conspiracy Theory Has Shaped Modern History

by David Aaronovitch
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2010)

Voodoo Histories: How Conspiracy Theory Has Shaped Modern History by David Aaronovitch A stinging assault on the shocking, dotty and sinister world of modern conspiracy theories by the award-winning journalist David Aaronovitch. There will be a new chapter on the anti-Obama birthers - a movement that is currently hitting the headlines.
 
Our age is obsessed by the idea of conspiracy. We see it everywhere from Pearl Harbour to 9/11, from the assassination of Kennedy to the death of Diana.
 
Voodoo Histories entertainingly demolishes the absurd and sinister conspiracy theories of the last 100 years. Aaronovitch reveals why people are so ready to believe in them and the dangers of this credulity. Meticulous in its research, forensic in its reasoning, hilarious in its debunking, this book will arm anyone who has found themselves at the wrong end of a conversation about moon landings or the twin towers.
