With an introduction by Russell Brand

What if a tiny, shadow elite rule the world from a secret room?

My worryingly paradoxical thought process could be summarized thus: Thank God I don't believe in the secret rulers of the world. Imagine what the secret rulers of the world might do to me if I did.

What if a tiny, shadow elite rule the world from a secret room? In Them Jon Ronson sets out to find this room, with the help of the extremists - Islamic fundamentalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen - that believe in it. Along the way, he is chased by men in dark glasses, unmasked as a Jew in the middle of a Jihad training camp, and witnesses international CEOs and politicians participate in a bizarre pagan ritual in the forests of northern California.

A Sunday Times bestseller and the book that launched Jon Ronson's inimitable career, Them is an eye-opening, outrageously funny exploration of extremism, which makes both author and reader think twice about the looking-glass world of 'us' and 'them' . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This book is chilling and hilarious by turns. Ronson's trademark laid-back attitude is a delight' Independent
`A funny and compulsively readable picaresque adventure through a paranoid shadow world' Louis Theroux, Guardian
A funny, superbly controlled account of Ronson's wanderings through the wonderland of fanaticism and delusion . . . The result is high comedy * New Statesman *
Often entertaining, more often disturbing . . . Ronson has gotten closer to these people than any journalist I can think of * New York Times *
The strength of Ronson's book is that it reminds us not only that extremists are weird but also that their fantasies take sustenance from the real world * Sunday Telegraph *
