“Broderick and Miller have done a remarkable job ... a clear-sighted and even-handed guide to the online world of conspiracy thinking ... useful for the casual surfer and the seasoned investigator alike.”
—Peter Knight, Conspiracy Theories in American History: An Encyclopedia
“An essential index of conspiracy theories and their most important medium, the Internet. Broderick and Miller have in measured tone created a teaching tool that sorts out the who, what, when, why, and where of conspiracism.”
—Robert Alan Goldberg, Enemies Within: The Culture of Conspiracy in Modern America
While googling a favorite conspiracy theory can produce thousands of results, until now Web searchers have been hard-pressed to separate useful sites from the just plain flaky. In Web of Conspiracy, award-winning journalists James F. Broderick and Darren W. Miller offer an objective look at various conspiracy theories and guide readers to the best sites for digging deeper.
From 9/11 to Roswell, from Princess Di to the Grassy Knoll and beyond, the authors explore more than 20 of the world’s most intriguing conspiracy theories. They examine the facts surrounding each theory, present prevailing and lesser-known arguments, and point to must-see Web sites that advocate, speculate, and debunk.

“This is a sneaky book, and I mean that in a good way. It’s a terrific reference guide to intriguing (and often wacky) conspiracy-minded Web sites. But the authors also do a great job in the book in recounting these conspiracies. Beware, if you read this book, you might never read Shakespeare in the same way again.”
—Jack Naudi, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
