In recent years, conspiracy theories have been thought to come exclusively from the wilder shores of political observation, implausibly far-fetched at best and dangerous at worst. By definition, however, a conspiracy occurs each time a group of influential people agree a course of action in private and by extra-democratic means. Conspiring is part of any politicianÂ’s job description, and any criminalÂ’s attempt to pervert the course of justice. From new information on the usual suspects, like the Bildeberg Group; through covert intelligence involvement with BritainÂ’s Wilson government, royal family, and in the Profumo affair; to ReaganÂ’s secret post-Cold-War agenda and a mooted plot within the current US administration to supersede George W. Bush.

Richard M. Bennett, author of Espionage and Elite Forces, has written a frightening and authoritative account of modern conspiracy theories, with guidance as to the credibility of each. It is a book destined to reclaim the concept of conspiracy from UFO-spotters, Holocaust denialists and survivalist freaks.Review:
'A fascinating read and an excellent source of reference.' Military Illustrated 'Espionage offers insights into this new era, where the threat lies not in hostile governments, but in highly sophisticated organisations like the al-Qaeda network.' New Statesman
