n this fascinating book, scholar of the occult and secret histories, John Michael Greer shines light on 100 mysterious conspiracies throughout history, from Ancient Greece to today.
These include everything from secret societies who planned coup d’etats and outright revolutions to underground cults and their hidden, and sometimes nefarious, agendas. Given that not all conspiracy theories are founded on fact, the book also explores conspiracy panics and frenzied or bizarre accusations.
The book covers such topics as the Bacchic mysteries of Ancient Greece, the Yellow Turban society of Ancient China, the Freemasons, the Satanic Hell-Fire Club, the Illuminati, the Decembrists, the Thule Society, the Ku Klux Klan, the Mafia and the John Birch Society, as well as the conspiracies surrounding the assassination of JFK and 9/11.
