The Saucer and the Swastika


25 July 2022

While the title of this book might give the impression that it’s going to be a look at madcap German inventions, real or imagined, the reality is nothing of the sort. It’s a look at how the dark cult of Aryan and white supremacy has led to all kinds of conspiracy theories and lunatic fringe politics. As such you get everything from Nazis at the South Pole, to South American sex cults and an entire Galactic Reich. However, this isn’t a salacious guide to far right lunatic beliefs, it’s more an academic discussion of them, which in many places makes for rather turgid and undigestible reading. One for students of conspiracy theories rather than general readers.
