Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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."

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."
