ABOUT THE BOOK
Since the mid-twentieth century, popular media and culture has become more and more focused on vast conspiracies which surround the average person. Many of these theories revolve around the belief that strange and sometimes threatening forces are in control of events and decisions made by governments, business leaders and even entertainment figures. The term “conspiracy theory” has entered the mainstream mindset. Some use “conspiracy theory” as a derogitory label to characterize theories as absurd, while others see the label as a point of insight and wonder.
In their book Conspiracies and Secret Societies, Brad and Sherry Steiger have set out to document and briefly explain the majority of these “theories” as well as cataloguing many of the reported actors alleged to be behind these activities. With over 450 entries, Conspiracies and Secret Societies claims to be the largest single volume every dedicated to subjects that by all accounts should remain secret.
