Them: Adventures with Extremists
Fun with extremists
Who really runs the world? Jon Ronson dons his tinfoil hat and enlists the help of prominent conspiracy theorists in his quest to answer this question. It ... READ MORE


Them is an eye-opening, outrageously funny exploration of extremism, which makes both author and reader think twice about the looking-glass world of 'us' and 'them' . . .

A Sunday Times bestseller and the book that launched Jon Ronson's inimitable career.

My worryingly paradoxical thought process could be summarized thus: Thank God I don't believe in the secret rulers of the world. Imagine what the secret rulers of the world might do to me if I did.

What if a tiny, shadow elite rule the world from a secret room? In Them Jon Ronson sets out to find this room, with the help of the extremists – Islamic fundamentalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen – that believe in it. Along the way, he is chased by men in dark glasses, unmasked as a Jew in the middle of a Jihad training camp, and witnesses international CEOs and politicians participate in a bizarre pagan ritual in the forests of northern California.

'This book is chilling and hilarious by turns.' - Independent

'A funny and compulsively readable picaresque adventure through a paranoid shadow world.' - Louis Theroux, Guardian
