Conspiracy Theories in American History


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Rocked by assassinations and sneak attacks, roiled by political intrigues, economic gyrations, and witch-hunts of all kinds, America has seen its worst nightmares come true time and again. No wonder it is such a hotbed of conspiracy fears-some limited to the paranoid fringe, some accepted by the mainstream, some all too well founded.

About the Author

Peter Knight, PhD, is a lecturer in American studies at the University of Manchester, Manchester, England.


"The editors of this fine reference rightfully assert that 'conspiracy theories have played a vital role in shaping the course of American history.' ... The first to cover the subject comprehensively, this work offers a dispassionate look at conspiracy theories, from the Boston Tea Party to September 11, 2001, placing each in the context of its time." - Library Journal "This is a fascinating reference ... [A]n excellent addition to academic and large public libraries." - Booklist "The encyclopedia admirably accomplishes its goals ... Articles are generally engaging and first rate in their scholarship... Unique in both format and content, this is a serious and worthwhile effort, and will surely become one of the more popular reference titles in many library collections." - American Reference Books Annual
