With all the books out there focusing on specific conspiracy theories, it's great to find a book that is so comprehensive that it literally covers them all…. This is a fantastic book for anyone who's been wondering about conspiracies, but didn't know where to start. One warning, however: Don't loan the book out and expect to get it back soon.

Conspiracies and Secret Societies: The Complete Dossier is a volume that I can highly recommend to my readers. It would make a handsome addition to the library shelves of anyone who enjoys a good intellectual challenge posed by tales of mystery, conspiracy, and the alleged activities of secret societies. This book delves into and reports on all sorts of brain-teasing mysteries in vast multiples, from all over the world, both ancient and modern.
Brent Raynes, Alternate Perceptions Magazine
Conspiracies and Secret Societies ? is an encyclopedia of the aliens, anarchists and axes of evil?-a mix of the real and delusional?-that have haunted us since man put chisel to stone?. Who knew conspiracies could be so fun and easy to concoct?
David J. Foster, News Gleaner (Philadelphia)
You won't find a clearer, more encyclopedic, or more honest look at conspiracies and secret societies.... I highly recommend this to all of my listeners.
Erskine; Host of Erskine Overnight
I predict this book will come to be the standard by which all efforts at codifying the world's hidden - and inextricably linked - power mechanisms will be judged. It is a true geopolitical, historical classic...a marvel by any measure...and will be read decades from now as the ultimate window back into a world seemingly gone mad.
Jeff Rense , Editor-in-Chief
Being in the media for over 20 years, I have read many books and have interviewed many authors, and once in a great while a true gem comes to my attention. CONSPIRACIES AND SECRET SOCIETIES THE COMPLETE DOSSIER by Brad and Sherry Steiger, is just that! …Here at last is all the information in one fantastic collection! No more searching through many different publications to find one here or two there. This one book says it all. It is well written, painstakingly researched, and very compelling, a trademark of all Brad and Sherry's work.
If you could only own one book on conspiracies, this is it. It's the culmination of meticulous, balanced research, seasoned storytelling, and a sense for the reader's needs, earned over decades by the Steigers' submersion in this field. Whenever I need information on conspiracies, whether personally or for show preparation, this is the book I will grab from the shelf.

Plenty of books have been written individually about select secret societies: now here's a handy A-Z reference which covers them all under one cover, providing over five hundred pages reviewing 300 individuals, organizations, and events which have puzzled modern times. From contemporary issues such as satellite snooping to historical background on societies such as the Freemasons, entries provide plenty of coverage and describe major events and secret societies with relevance to today's world. CONSPIRACIES AND SECRET SOCIETIES: THE COMPLETE DOSSIER is a must for any collection strong in investigative inquiry. Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch
Midwest Book Review
a must for the conspiracy / secret society buff to own.
Rob McConnell, Host of the "X-Zone" radio show
[A] wonderful read: It calmly and rationally explains the sort of urban myths and conspiracy theories that we all hear dribs and drabs about around the water cooler, but of which few of us really know the details? In a straightforward manner, [the Steigers] present evidence for a theory and evidence against it. ? [An] always entertaining, sometimes funny, occasionally disturbing reference book.
Steven Greenhut, Orange County Register
Startling allegations. Suppressed evidence. Missing witnesses. Assassinations. Cover-ups and threats. Documented connections to even deeper intrigue. Allusions to the New World Order. Coincidences? too many to be mere coincidence? American history is replete with warnings of hidden plots by the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the Zionists, the Roman Catholics, the Communists, World Bankers, the Secret Government, New Agers, and Extra-Terrestrial Invaders, to name a few.
The truth is out there, somewhere, maybe. In this age of minimum individual privacy and maximum government secrecy, the truth sometimes seems a battered relic, more myth than reality, and more valuable for its rarity. Shedding light onto the darkest and most enduring of stories, Conspiracies and Secret Societies: The Complete Dossier is a compelling encyclopedic overview of 300 individuals, organizations, and events where official claims and standard explanations of actions and events remain clouded in mystery.
Well known by denizens of late-night radio and with some 200 titles between them, best-selling authors Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger extend their reputation as expert chroniclers of unusual crime and strange occurrences. In Conspiracies and Secret Societies, they describe major conspiracies and significant secret organizations through the ages, with an emphasis on modern skullduggery and concealment. The Steigers present doubts concerning official reports or the dominant understanding of events and explore valid, occasionally outrageous counter-claims. Information on the background and responses relating to conspiracies and secret societies is intelligently presented?helping to clarify mystery and intrigue, claims and explanations. The authors explain why questions linger about these topics like chemtrails (aerosol operations considered a ?normal and expected consequence? of daily life and aircraft flights). Ahh, the whiff of scandal.
With nearly 100 illustrations and organized in an engaging A-to-Z format, the complete dossier encompasses topical issues, historical riddles, old and enduring societies, modern-day initiates, favorite topics among conspiracy theorists, and more recent claims.
