Klappentext

Our age is obsessed by the idea of conspiracy. We see it everywhere from Pearl Harbour to 9/11, from the assassination of Kennedy to the death of Diana. VOODOO HISTORIES entertainingly demolishes the absurd and sinister conspiracy theories of the last 100 years. Aaronovitch reveals why people are so ready to believe in them and the dangers of this credulity. Meticulous in its research, forensic in its reasoning, hilarious in its debunking, this book will arm anyone who has found themselves at the wrong end of a conversation about moon landings or the twin towers. ** The paperback includes a new chapter on the anti-Obama birthers - a movement that is currently gathering steam and hitting the headlines ** The book explodes the conspiracy theories surrounding: - the Protocols of the Elders of Zion -Pearl Harbour -The deaths of Kennedy, Monroe and Princess Diana - Pseudohistory such as the Holy Blood, Holy Grail -9/11 Truth Movement -The moon landings
