Book Description

Feb. 1 2012

Examining nearly every conspiracy theory in the public’s consciousness today, this investigation seeks to link seemingly unrelated theories through a cultural studies perspective. While looking at conspiracy theories that range from the moon landing and JFK’s assassination to the Oklahoma City bombing and Freemasonry, this reconstruction reveals newly discovered connections between wide swaths of events. Linking Dracula to George W. Bush, UFOs to strawberry ice cream, and Jesus Christ to robots from outer space, this is truly an all-original discussion of popular conspiracy theories.

Product Description


Whether you believe or disbelieve in deep and hidden conspiracies, Robert Guffey's droll yet thought-provoking book Cryptoscatology should be required reading. From the valid to the invalid, from the provable to the possible, from real life to art, Guffey shuffles the most prominent names and topics in conspiracyland. They are all laid on the vivisection table with often surprising results. Don't miss this ride." — Jim Marrs, author of The New York Times Best Sellers Crossfire, Rule by Secrecy, and The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy

"Finally, a scholarly book takes conspiracy theory seriously. . . . I cannot recommend this book highly enough. For fans of science fiction, conspiracy theory or a good spy story (a true story, at that), Cryptoscatology is required reading." —Tessa B. Dick, author, Philip K. Dick: Remembering Firebright

5.0 out of 5 stars are you being brainwashed? April 20 2013
By Tessa B. Dick - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
From our schools to our media, from advertising to covert programs, we are being told not only what to think but also how to think. This well-researched book focuses on evidence and is light on speculation. It is a great resource for those who have an interest in communication, sociology and psychology. It gives specific examples of people who might have been brainwashed, as well as information about how brainwashing might be done.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Free in Freemasonry Jan. 1 2013
By Yukio - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book! However, the unbalanced focus on Pike and the roots of freemasonry is a bit of detriment. That subject has been handled by everyone from Brad Metzger and his perma-shocked looking three acolytes to the Roman Catholic Church. Everyone knows that the truth is somewhere in between the lines. Professor Guffey, take your tremendous scrutiny and apply it to more than just a couple of areas! Wouldn't it be something if someone of your insights applied cryptoscatology to the bizarre and ongoing connections of Mormonism to freemasonry? Then, perhaps, the truth will really set a horde of misguided individuals free.
