Product description

Review

"Anna Merlan reveals that the conspiracy theorists we all once felt a little sorry for (if annoyed by) have become the masters of the universe, lodged in the White House and presidential palaces throughout the world. It’s a rich insight that makes this something more than a good book – it makes it a necessary book." (David Aaronovitch, author of VOODOO HISTORIES)

"[An] engrossing assessment of the profitable mainstreaming of conspiracy mongering in civic and political life . . . Captures this unsettling narrative succinctly and concretely . . . A lucid, well-researched look at a slippery topic." (Kirkus Reviews)

"To understand America you need to understand conspiracy theories . . . Merlan’s exploration into the subject discovers some timely and troubling questions." (Evening Standard)
