The year is 2002. War is imminent. As coalition forces gather to invade Iraq, Saddam Hussein plans his counterattack. In Colombia, a consortium of global businesses, secretly known as Operation Hydra, has developed a new and lethal breed of chemical and biological weapons and plans to sell them to the highest bidder. Saddam ́s access to these WMDs would alter the outcome of the Second Gulf War. In Manhattan, Sharon Weinstock, a brilliant but neurotic prosecutor, verges on a nervous breakdown. In an uncharacteristic act of spontaneity, she leaves her job and flies to Aruba, hoping to confront her demons and pursue her Zen state. While there, she stumbles onto the principals behind Operation Hydra and unwittingly involves herself in their deadly conspiracy. As she unravels their secrets, they draw her ever deeper into their dark world. She must discover within herself the courage necessary to take on the forces behind Operation Hydra and prevent catastrophe in the Middle East.

Why are Americans today so fascinated by the X-Files? How did rumors emerge about the origins of the AIDS virus as a weapon of biowarfare? Why does the Kennedy assassination provoke heated debate nearly forty years after the fact, and what do we make of Hillary Clinton's accusation of a "vast right-wing conspiracy" against her husband? The origins of these ideas reveal important facets of American culture and politics. Placing conspiracy thinking at the center of American history, and challenging the knee-jerk dismissal of conspiratorial thought as deluded and sometimes dangerous, Conspiracy Nation provides a wide-ranging survey of conspiracy theories in contemporary America. In the 19th century, inflammatory rhetoric about slave revolts, the well-publicized specter of the black rapist, and the formation of the Ku Klux Klan all worked as conspiracy theories to legitimate an emerging sense of national consciousness based on an ideology of white supremacy. Today, panicked responses to increasing multiculturalism and globalization yield new notions of victimhood and new theories about conspiratorial plans for global domination. Offering up a provocative array of examples, ranging from alien abduction to the novels of DeLillo and Pynchon to Tupac Shakur's "paranoid style," Conspiracy Nation documents and unearths the workings of conspiracy in the contemporary moment. Their conclusions, sometimes startling and always compelling, have much to say about the nature of identity and anxiety, imagination and politics, and the state of the American psyche today.

McClure, Timothy Melley, Eithne Quinn, and Skip Willman.

An alien abductee on the Internet claims extra-terrestrials have planted a microchip in her left buttock. 'Julia Roberts in Porn Scandal' shouts the front page of a gossip mag.
