Screen_shot_2020-12-11_at_1.05.30_pm

Real Enemies, featuring Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, was inspired by Kathryn S. Olmsted’s 2013 book Real Enemies: Conspiracy Theories and American Democracy, World War I through 9/11. Watch as Professor Olmsted of UC Davis’ History Department, writer and director Isaac Butler, and MacArthur Fellow journalist and writer Mark Danner of UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism as they had a lively conversation about the grip of conspiracy theories on the American imagination.
We encourage you to read Real Enemies: Conspiracy Theories and American Democracy, World War I through 9/11 (Oxford University Press), available from any online bookseller.
