Reviews

"Aaronovitch tackles the intriguing question of why well-educated, reasonable people sometimes believe 'perfectly ridiculous things.'" --NPR "Lively... In most cases, Mr. Aaronovitch notes, conspiracy theorists would rather tie themselves into complicated knots and postulate all sorts of improbable secret connections than accept a simple, more obvious explanation." --The New York Times "Every reader will have his favorite crank." -- The New York Times Book Review "Meticulous in its research, forensic in its reasoning, robust in its argument, and often hilarious in its debunking... a highly entertaining rumble with the century's major conspiracy theorists and their theories." --John Lahr, National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Tennessee Williams "Terrifying, hilarious, irreverent and addictively compelling, Voodoo Histories is an instant classic that should be read by everyone--a brilliant, witty and devastating analysis of, and guide to, the big lies of modern history by our most brilliant commentator" - Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin and Stalin: The Court Of The Red Tsar "A brilliant, sparkling and witty demolition of numerous conspiracy theories--not only dotty but sometimes, as in the case of the fabricated Protocols of the Elders of Zion--highly dangerous and an analysis of why otherwise intelligent people are so ready to believe in them" - Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler and To Hell and Back
