This book is an attempt to address the widespread criticism of 'conspiracy theories', raising issues like the control and negligence of the main organs of the media and police which make it difficult for true information to reach the public etc. Many conspiracies are described in detail e.g. the 1641 and 1918-21 Irish Independence Movements and also the role of Occult and Secret Societies.
