Kudos to Arthur Goldwag, who has compiled some of the best theories, facts, and far-out doctrines into this outstanding reference work. Each section is introduced with an examination of the broader topic as well as an explanation of the criteria Goldwag uses, but quickly moves on to the alphabetically arranged, cut-to-the-chase entries. The conspiracies written about here are, for the most part, the truly grand ones, involving hundreds or thousands of plotters engaged in economic, political, or terror schemes that affect the entire world. Al Qaeda, for example, is mentioned in this section rather than in Cults because of its criminal and political agenda and its noticeable lack of religious motivation.

Aug 17, Heatherfeather rated it really liked it Good introduction to some of the more famous cults, conspiracies, and secret societies of the world. The first part Cults was the best and most interesting part of this book. Next came the conspiracy theories which I believe were written with TOO much bias. The author discredits some theories comparing them to the idea of Intelligent design, as a result the author automatically loses all authority on the matter in my eyes since I, without a doubt, believe in creation.
The last part of this book Secret Societies was unbearably repetitive since all of these This book is made up of 3 parts.
The last part of this book Secret Societies was unbearably repetitive since all of these had been discussed in the previous 2 parts. If this author was a little more object I think this book would be more interesting. Well before word processing there has been a great deal of cut and paste of ideas. There are no shortage of groups that incorporate any number of conspiratorial ideas into their thoughts.
The book does a good job of showing how the often many amazing co-incidents presented to prove a conspiracy are just facts pulled out of pure air and made to look like they are A rather comprehensive overview of Cults, Conspiracies and Secret Societies. The book does a good job of showing how the often many amazing co-incidents presented to prove a conspiracy are just facts pulled out of pure air and made to look like they are part of something bigger. My one beef is the lack of an index.
