Startling allegations. Suppressed evidence. Missing witnesses. Assassinations. Cover-ups and threats. Documented connections to even deeper intrigue. Allusions to the New World Order. Coincidences? Too many to be mere coincidence? American history is replete with warnings of hidden plots by the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the Zionists, the Roman Catholics, the Communists, World Bankers, the Secret Government, and Extra-Terrestrial Invaders, to name a few.

Separating fact from fiction, this compelling work provides gripping details and presents the information without bias, including hundreds of individuals, organizations, and events where official claims and standard explanations of actions and events remain shrouded in mystery. Conspiracies and Secret Societies: The Complete Dossier examines the most common subjects among conspiracy theorists, from historical topics such as the true relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, the Roswell UFO crash, and the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. to more current issues such as the death of Princess Diana, FEMA’s response following hurricane Katrina, and the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is truly an astonishing encyclopedia of conspiracies of every kind and secret societies of every dark shade, from antiquity right up to the present day. ... It's another must-have."—

"The Steigers' present in this massive book a truly wide and fascinating range of material dealing with an endless array of startling scenarios of conspiracy and secret societies. There’s virtually everything here."— Alternate Perceptions Magazine

"If you’re not already paranoid, you may be after reading this book. This primer hits the highlights of murder plots, suicides, extraterrestrials, government cover-ups, and religious mysteries throughout the centuries."— Booklist

"Well worth adding to any library … but be forewarned: reading this work may just change your outlook on life, and for that matter, the entire world you thought you knew… radical shifts in your accepted reality may await!"—

"Just about every odd, secretive and intellectually indulging subject is proposed and explained .... [I]n the scope of conspiracy and secretive societies published works goes, this has to be my favorite. Definitely worth the price of admission!"—

"[A] wonderful read: It calmly and rationally explains the sort of urban myths and conspiracy theories that we all hear dribs and drabs about around the water cooler, but of which few of us really know the details? In a straightforward manner, [the Steigers] present evidence for a theory and evidence against it. [An] always entertaining, sometimes funny, occasionally disturbing reference book."— Orange County Register

"Riveting tome.... Written in an accessible, entertaining style.... Chock-full of engrossing and provocative articles.... While this work may offend, enrage, and even frighten some, it’s sure to be a hit with conspiracy enthusiasts."— School Library Journal

"From Alchemy to Zionism this fearless masterpiece breaks down the truth and filters through the lies, presenting the reader with a clear and precise picture of the world around them. Big thumbs up!"— The Conspiracy Review

"Top Ten Synchromystic Books of the Year"— The Twilight Language
Just about every odd, secretive and intellectually indulging subject is proposed and explained . . . [I]n the scope of conspiracy and secretive societies published works goes, this has to be my favorite. Definitely worth the price of admission!
Library Journal
An A-to-Z of 300 people, places, and events that remain "shrouded in mystery in spite of official explanations."-Mirela Roncevic Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Patrons interested in conspiracy theories and the paranormal will fly through this riveting tome. It's written in an accessible, entertaining style and is chock-full of engrossing and provocative articles that range from a few paragraphs to several pages in length, many accompanied by black-and-white photos. There are no internal citations or reference lists, though websites and sources are sometimes mentioned within the text. However, since this is a dossier of conspiracy theories, the lack of credible reference sources is understandable. Topics are arranged alphabetically and vary from coverage of popularized conspiracy theories such as those around JFK's assassination, Obama's birth certificate, and Roswell to conspiracies that may be less well-known to teens such as Maria Monk's assault on Catholicism, the nefarious Mothman, and Morgellons disease. The pyramids and the Sphinx are included, but Stonehenge, a common research topic for students, is not. Also missing is an entry on the Georgia Guidestones, theories surrounding which have been around for decades and are a current buzz on some social media sites. Despite these minor oversights, Conspiracies offers a fascinating look at enigmas, intrigues, and oddities. While this work may offend, enrage, and even frighten some, it's sure to be a hit with conspiracy enthusiasts and certainly won't be a shelf-sitter.—Patricia N. McClune, Conestoga Valley High School, Lancaster, PA
