Conspiracy theories are more prevalent than ever in the United States. In They Knew, bestselling author Sarah Kendzior explores in depth the nation’s burgeoning “culture of conspiracy” and argues that uncritical faith in broken institutions is as dangerous as false narratives peddled by propagandists. In reporter Elizabeth Williamson’s Sandy Hook: An American Tragedy and a Battle for Truth, the author describes via exhaustive reporting the conspiracies that proliferated after the 2012 tragedy.
