Though dismissing conspiracy theories may be the rational response, the entries in these two volumes reveal how prevalent such theories, and actual conspiracies, have been in American life and the often dominant role they've played in national affairs. Among the entry topics are abortion, AIDS, Area 51, the Bay of Pigs invasion, fluoridation, the Fugitive Slave Act, the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Thomas Pynchon, the Red Scare, the Salem witch trials, the Weathermen, and yellow journalism. Each entry is signed and includes cross-references and a list of bibliography. A significant part of the set is devoted to c.100 primary source documents in the appendix, meant as a supplement to the 1971 work by David Brion Davis, The Fear of Conspiracy; Images of Un-American Subversion... . The entries were written by academics and some independent scholars, who are based mainly in the US and the UK. Knight teaches American studies at the U. of Manchester in the UK.
