Conspiracy Theories in Eastern European Culture and Literature

Several of the most prolific and influential conspiracy theories originated in Eastern Europe. The efficacy of conspiracy narratives can be observed in recent developments in Poland or with regard to the wars waged in eastern Ukraine and in former Yugoslavia. This volume analyses the history behind this widespread phenomenon as well as its relationship with representations of the present in Eastern European cultures and literatures.
