Conspiracies are everywhere. They are the lifeblood of politics, business and our daily lives. This truly international and all-embracing encyclopedia explains the details of the world's major popular conspiracies, listing them chronologically under subject matter and cross-referencing them continually (because so many conspiracy theories interact on some level). Conspiracies are often international in their sweep and their impact. The brutal stabbing of Julius Caesar (the conspiracy which has defined political assassinations ever since) plunged the Roman Empire into civil war, which then engulfed much of the known western world. More recently the Cambridge spies (Philby, Blunt, MacLean and Burgess) helped Russia throughout WWII and then re-defined the Cold War afterwards, Philby’s defection casting a 30-year shadow over CIA/Anglo-American relations. Though conspiracies define our everyday lives, there is no body of serious academic research to understand their role, nature or defining characteristics. Most historians prefer to adhere to the cock-up theory of history, in which everything happens by accident or incompetence. Although this view is favoured by academics and historians, it is rejected by a large part of the general public who prefer the evidence of their own lives. However they consume their media, what they see is a mesh of conspiracies that define the texture of their everyday lives, often for the worst. Most people believe that there is a grain of truth in most theories about conspiracies. This book is for them.

Why are Americans today so fascinated by the X-Files? How did rumors emerge about the origins of the AIDS virus as a weapon of biowarfare? Why does the Kennedy assassination provoke heated debate nearly forty years after the fact, and what do we make of Hillary Clinton's accusation of a "vast right-wing conspiracy" against her husband? The origins of these ideas reveal important facets of American culture and politics. Placing conspiracy thinking at the center of American history, and challenging the knee-jerk dismissal of conspiratorial thought as deluded and sometimes dangerous, Conspiracy Nation provides a wide-ranging survey of conspiracy theories in contemporary America. In the 19th century, inflammatory rhetoric about slave revolts, the well-publicized specter of the black rapist, and the formation of the Ku Klux Klan all worked as conspiracy theories to legitimate an emerging sense of national consciousness based on an ideology of white supremacy. Today, panicked responses to increasing multiculturalism and globalization yield new notions of victimhood and new theories about conspiratorial plans for global domination. Offering up a provocative array of examples, ranging from alien abduction to the novels of DeLillo and Pynchon to Tupac Shakur's "paranoid style," Conspiracy Nation documents and unearths the workings of conspiracy in the contemporary moment. Their conclusions, sometimes startling and always compelling, have much to say about the nature of identity and anxiety, imagination and politics, and the state of the American psyche today. Contributors: Clare Birchall, Jack Bratich, Bridget Brown, Jodi Dean, Ingrid Walker Fields, Douglas Kellner, Peter Knight, Fran Mason, John A. McClure, Timothy Melley, Eithne Quinn, and Skip Willman.

Encyclopedia Of White Power

The American Nazi Party. Skinheads. The Aryan Nations. Black Metal. The Ku Klux Klan. Christian Identity. These and other white power groups are sensationalized in the press, policed by private watchdog groups, infiltrated by the government, universally demonized and feared. But who are the white power movement's members and sympathizers? What are their beliefs and their motivations? How do they operate and communicate in a society so antagonistic to their goals? What kind of threat do they pose? Letting the radical racist right speak for themselves, Jeffrey Kaplan has created an indispensable reference volume. The Encyclopedia of White Power presents the movement's many facets in the U.S. and Europe since World War II. The first half of the Encyclopedia is made up of over 100 in-depth entries -- many of them essay-length -- and includes several entries by former and current movement activists. Entries by scholars and activists are written, as far as possible, in a value-free manner in order topresent the movement without distortion. The second half brings together original resources from the movement, each prefaced and placed in context by the editor. These documents, often available nowhere else, are invaluable for researchers. An introduction places the volume in context of larger scholarly issues and includes the editor's own reflections on researching the movement. Cross-references and an index make the information easily accessible. For scholars of race, religion, or politics, the Encyclopedia of White Power is an essential resource.
