“Ten Books in One . . . Face-to-face with 25 years of research gathered from no less than 40 countries, most writers would have looked to come up with any number of spy, horror, and suspense novels suggested by this trove of material. Peter Levenda, however, tackled it head-on. So, he set himself the near-to-impossible task of pulling together such diverse threads as pop culture, archaeology, anthropology, poetry, religion, the occult, and a host of government actions overt and hidden. In return, he has produced the first installment of a thesis that is by turns compelling, cautious, maddening, and intriguing.” —Norman Mailer, from the cloth edition

So i had to pick this up as well and was not at all disappointed.
Peter Levenda goes to great lengths at giving us documented evidence of his material and offers it in a way for the layman to understand the subject matter.
Very insightful into a majority of topics that have a hidden line of reasoning that makes you think.
Is there a hidden influence in history? Is there something hidden behind the secret societies and conspiracies? Is there another level of influence? For example, does the landscape and its history (the peoples and traumas of the past) influence the people and traumas of the present?
Peter Levenda searches for linkages between people, places, history and details in this survey of some of the major traumas in recent American history. You'll be surprised at what he finds.
It took Levenda decades to compile the research for this trilogy. It covers a lot of ground. It's fascinating and informative. It's very well written.
If you ever wanted to know about Charles Manson, ancient mounds, MK ULTRA, Sirhan Sirhan, assassinations, serial killers, occultists, weird cults and what they might have to do with the history behind our history, this is the series for you.
Even if you weren't interested in all the above, you still need this trilogy because it goes into all sorts of other things. Like wandering bishops and hallucinogenics, and the Summer of Love (and Manson)...
Concisely written, the web of names that appeared and disappear quickly from the news that we know only as sound bites and are taught to disregard any further investigation lest we be labeled conspiracy theorists.
The same names pop up again and again in the periphery of the most outrageous events of the past. Discover a gripping historical mystery, worth reading as an Alternate History... Tho if you research any of his endless footnotes, There is a story that makes sense far more than the history we learned through mass media.
tangent but overall one survives it and walks away with
increased knowledge and belief in the existence of the evil
force beyond previous imagination.
