This tour de force is an absolute 'must-read' for anyone interested in unpicking and challenging the 'received wisdom' of mainstream accounts of various key events which have shaped history. McConnachie and Tudge have done a huge amount of investigative spade-work and heavy lifting for us, researching facts, pointing out contradictions, asking intelligent questions, and always leaving us, the readers, to form our own opinions. Shocking examples of injustice, violence, shady deals, confusion, deception and manipulation are analysed and carefully picked through - with the authors never becoming polemic or partisan. This is a high art. If you've ever had a feeling that 'things are not as they seem' with regard to the reporting of certain events, contemporary or historical, this book is for you. This 'Rough Guide' is really more like THE 'Definitive Guide'. Readers will re-visit familiar 'conspiracies' like 'Who shot JFK?', but will also be introduced to shocking, topical information that needs considering - NOW! I marvel at the amount of work that has obviously gone into this book. Absolutely un-put-down-able.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enlightening and balanced guide to conspiracy theories., 14 Aug 2013

This review is from: Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories, The (3rd) (Paperback)
James McConnachie & Robin Tudge have written a fascinating, enlightening and balanced guide to over 100 of the many conspiracy theories that proliferate in the world.
The conspiracies are grouped into six sections: 'Assassinations and downfalls'; 'Mega-conspiracies and master plans'; 'The land of the free'; 'Real weapons of mass destruction'; 'Conspiracies of sea, sky and space' & 'Warplay'.
Individual conspiracies discussed range from the completely barking(The Apollo moon landing was faked) to the entirely believable(The CIA's attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro).
The book concludes with a useful archive section listing the books, films and websites dealing with conspiracy theories.
This third edition(2013) has been updated and includes new material on Osama bin Laden, the global banking crisis and the causes of the Arab Spring.
Overall, 'The Rough Guide To Conspiracy Theories' gives a valuable insight into the state of the modern world and this endlessly browseable book deserves to be widely read.

This review is from: Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories, The (3rd) (Paperback)
Great fun, tells it like it is but with an air of removed judgement. It's a good pick up put down book with each conspiracy no longer than 5 pages. Nice bedtime reading.

I'm a sucker for conspiracies and this is a very entertaining book. It made me realise that I'm nothing like as crazy as some of the folk in here!
