This definitive book delves into why so many people are ready to believe in conspiracy theories, and the damage it can cause.

Voodoo Histories entertainingly demolishes the absurd and sinister conspiracy theories of the last 100 years, such as:Did Neil Armstrong really set foot on the moon?Was the United States government responsible for the 11 September attacks?Should we doubt the accidental nature of Princess Diana's death?David Aaronovitch reveals not only why people are so ready to believe in these stories but also the dangers of this credulity.

'This book leaves us in no doubt that arriving at the truth is a vital matter - at times a matter of life and death' Financial Times.
