Summary

A history so funny, so true, so scary, it's bound to be called a conspiracy. "Meticulous in its research, forensic in its reasoning, robust in its argument, and often hilarious in its debunking, Voodoo Historiesis a highly entertaining rumble with the century's major conspiracy theorists and their theories" (John Lahr). From Pearl Harbor to 9/11 to the assassination of JFK to the Birthers, Aaronvitch probes and explores the major conspiracy theories (and theorists) of our time. In doing so, he examines why people believe these conspiracies and makes an argument for a true skepticism.
