Praise

“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
