The roots of coincidence and conspiracy in American politics, crime, and culture are examined in this first volume of a three-part set, exposing new connections between religion, political conspiracy, and occultism. Based on the premise that there is a satanic undercurrent to American affairs, this study examines the sinister forces at work throughout history, from ancient American civilizations and the mysterious mound-builder culture to the Salem witch trials, the birth of Mormonism during a ritual of ceremonial magic by Joseph Smith Jr., and Operations Paperclip and Bluebird. Not a work of speculative history, this exposé is founded on primary source material and historical documents. Fascinating details are revealed, including the bizarre world of "wandering bishops" who appear throughout the Kennedy assassinations; a CIA mind-control program run amok in the United States and Canada; a famous American spiritual leader who had ties to Lee Harvey Oswald in the weeks and months leading up to the assassination of President Kennedy; and the "Manson secret."

Sinister Forces- The Nine
"Sinister Forces" reads like a off the beaten path, alternative American History book. It's a fascinating book that takes the reader from WWII into the Cold War, and touches on key events, and the extremely strange connections they have. Levenda follows a strange thread that winds its way through American History in the 20th century. There are many familiar names and included, but in completely different ways than you have seen them before. You may not agree with some of the assertions Levenda makes, but his documentation is compelling. Either way, it is a very interesting read for anyone who enjoy a wide variety of topics, including conspiracies, history, the occult, UFOs, spirituality and consciousness.
PS- I would recommend the rest of the series as well. All the books are long, and at times complicated, but so is the subject matter. Well worth the effort.
