Voodoo Histories: How Conspiracy Theory Has Shaped Modern History

  • Aug 18, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This book came 3rd (actually, it was joint second but I have already announced 4th place!) in our August/September poll.  As with '59 Seconds...' I am unsure of who suggested it - please step forward to host.  I have chosen a date and venue but there is leeway should another person step forward to host.  I may well need someone to do so as I do not know that I will be able to attend this one.

 

From Amazon:

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?

 

Voodoo Histories entertainingly demolishes the absurd and sinister conspiracy theories of the last 100 years. Aaronovitch reveals not only why people are so ready to believe in these stories but also the dangers of this credulity.

 

*Includes a new chapter investigating the conspiracy theories that question Obama's legitimacy as president *
