Think You Know What's Really Going On In The World? Think Again!

Too unsettling to be buried in the shadows for far too long, the Pandora's Box of information unleashed in this completely updated and expanded expose proves you just can't get away from Them. Hidden agendas, massive cover-ups, diabolically sinister plots—if you can handle it, the lowdown on the latest right-under-your-nose conspiracies is right here, including:

9/11: Islamic terrorism...or inside job?
George W. Bush: The real powers behind the leader of the free world
Atlantis Rising: the deep and wide mythology of a "lost" civilization
Elvis: Still everywhere, with new King-size theories aplenty
Cuidad Juarez: Who—or what—is behind the unsolved serial killings of more than 90 women in this otherwise sleepy border town?
Dick "Darth" Cheney: Dr. Evil for the New Millennium?
And many others that will have you looking over your shoulder

With the sordid truth finally leaking more and more into the nightly news, this provocative compilation is crucial reading for seeing beyond what They want you to believe.
