MEDIA REVIEWS

"Jovan Byford's account as to why conspiracy theories are persistent, proliferating and popular offers a welcome, pertinent and well-constructed survey. [It is a] clear, accessible, illustrated, indexed and erudite text " - Equinox: Journal for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism, Vol 3, No 1 (2012), (http://www.equinoxpub.com/journals/index.php/JRFF/article/view/15294/pdf)

"In this book, Jovan Byford has managed to pull off a neat little trick. He has produced a book that not only provides an excellent introduction to the psychology of belief in conspiracy theories for the beginner but also provides food for thought for those already working in the area." - Chris French, Goldsmiths, UK

"In this book Jovan Byford provides a clear, concise and compelling guide to conspiracy theories. He explains where they come from, why people believe in them, and what the political consequences are. Given the vast increase in talk of conspiracy in the age of the internet, there is a real need for an accessible yet critical introduction to the topic, and this book provides it." Peter Knight, University of Manchester, UK
