Conspiracy theory and American foreign policy

First Edition

Tim Aistrope

Published by Manchester University Press

New Approaches to Conflict Analysis MUP

  • One of the first book-length enquiries into the international political dimension of the implications of conspiracy thought
  • Contributes an original account of conspiracy theory in American foreign policy, drawing on insights from critical security studies and post colonial theory
  • Adds a novel perspective on the processes through which legitimacy and illegitimacy is produced around issues of foreign policy controversy, and on the ideological function of discourse more broadly
  • Appeals to a wider cross-disciplinary readership interested in the burgeoning issues of conspiracy, paranoia and popular knowledge, including their relationship to and consequences for contemporary politics
