This up-to-date introduction to the complex world of conspiracies and conspiracy theories provides insight into why millions of people are so ready to believe the worst about our political, legal, religious, and financial institutions. Unsupported theories provide simple explanations for catastrophes that are otherwise difficult to understand, from the U.S. Civil War to the Stock Market Crash of 1929 to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. Ideas about shadowy networks that operate behind a cloak of secrecy, including real organizations like the CIA and the Mafia and imagined ones like the Illuminati, additionally provide a way for people to criticize prevailing political and economic arrangements, while for society's disadvantaged and forgotten groups, conspiracy theories make their suffering and alienation comprehensible and provide a focal point for their economic or political frustrations. These volumes detail the highly controversial and influential phenomena of conspiracies and conspiracy theories in American society. Through interpretive essays and factual accounts of various people, organizations, and ideas, the reader will gain a much greater appreciation for a set of beliefs about political scheming, covert intelligence gathering, and criminal rings that has held its grip on the minds of millions of American citizens and encouraged them to believe that the conspiracies may run deeper, and with a global reach.

F. Scott Fitzgerald once said: »Show me a hero, and I'll write you a tragedy.« In the 1990s, nobody fell deeper than O.J. Simpson. Once considered a national treasure, the athlete was accused of brutally slaying his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman on June 12, 1994. Within days, the media and public developed an unprecedented obsession with the story, turning a murder investigation and trial into a sensationalized reality show. Tatjana Neubauer examines the mediatization, deliberate manipulation, and the simplification of popular criminal trials for profit on television. She demonstrates that TV conflated legal proceedings into entertainment programming by commodifying events, people, and places.

This compelling investigation into the unsolved murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman focuses on the time-frame when the murders occurred - the "killing time", sometime between 10 PM and 11 PM, June 12, 1994. In a groundbreaking scientific forensic investigation, material from the crime scene is analyzed to produce different scenarios of the murders, each with its own timeline of evidence and players, some involving O. J. Simpson in the murders, some not. The narrative begins with a review of the trial, the evidence, and the partisan theories of the Prosecution and Defense; then moves minute-by-minute through new retellings of the murders. Woven throughout are interviews, explosive information, and signs of both conspiracy and cover-up, from what the lawyers didn't tell you and the press didn't report, to insights from a "deep throat" source within law enforcement, to evidence of organized crime in Brentwood. Only after you have considered all the scenarios will you be able to decide for yourself whether the case is open or closed. For those wanting to develop their own scenarios, new leads and a blank timeline are provided.
