There probably exist thousands of conspiracy theories about hundreds of subjects, but a broad overview of them can be attained by grouping them into categories and explicating representative examples within each category—as has been done in this book. In the era of the Trump Presidency, conspiracy theories have become writ large in ways that we could not have imagined as recently as three years ago. Trump’s continual espousal of such theories, has pushed them into the mainstream.

Whereas conspiracy theories have always been part of American politics, they’ve tended to appeal only to fringe audiences, but they now seem to dominate the mainstream debate, and they have the potential to do considerable harm by creating feelings of hopelessness and alienation. It may be only a matter of time before paranoia becomes a national mental health crisis.
