Do you remember that party you went to back in college, you know, the one where you got really wasted and ended up in this epic conversation with someone whose name and face you can't quite remember right now? Remember how you both decided Jaws was a parable about the international revolutionary impulse (Quint the proletariat, Hooper and Brody the bourgeoisie, and the shark, well that was the lurking horror that is capitalism)? Remember? Well that's what reading all three volumes of Levenda's Si ...more
Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft, Peter Levenda, TrineDay, 2005

This book presents a very different view of American history, based on years of original research, not fantasy or speculation.

Some say that mankind came to North America by walking across the Bering Straits, when it was frozen, and heading south. Others say that mankind traveled across the Pacific from China or Polynesia, and across the Atlantic from Europe and the Mediterranean. If the Bering Straits poin
This book is so well supported by documentation the author references throughout each section that it is very unsettling and at the very least thought provoking. It has definitely made me see american/global politics and esoteric philosophy/magic/witchcraft going hand in hand. One of my favorite reads in the past 5 years or so. Also, it's not that you need to believe the author all the's so well written that it comes off as plausible sci-fi/fantasy.
Peter Levenda attempts to assemble (or disassemble, depending on your point of view) a vast web of interlocking coincidences, or more accurately, synchronicities in American history going back to ancient times. I hesitate to label what Levenda writes about as "conspiracy theories" for a couple of reasons. If readers are to consider this a book about "conspiracy theories" they need to know that (and I'm speaking as someone who has read voraciously on all sides of that slippery genre for twenty ye ...more

As a Christian, I do not engage in occult activities. However, I do believe that we should keep ourselves informed about occult activities that have infiltrated and corrupted our political process.

This is the first volume in a three-volume work in which Peter Levenda continues his investigation of occult involvement in politics begun in Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement With the Occult.

As with Levenda's other books, this one is well researched, and if I were rating the book on resea
Andrew Ceyton
I Love Peter Levenda. The man has a practical working knowledge of the occult yet shows no signs of gullibility or touchy feely mysticism. He understands that occult conspiracies are really not important until you understand the players who believe in them. Great book.
Aaron Singleton
This is a book everyone with an interest in American history should read. It is painfully researched and documented, as much as you would expect in any scholarly work. Peter Levenda has written one of most in-depth books about the secret history of the US, the history hidden from the average citizen. Good thing Levenda isn't an average citizen.

After a great introduction by Norman Mailer, this series takes a look at many of the events that have shaped our nation, events that permeated the airwave
Cynthia Rennolds
I read all three of the Sinister Forces book and found them fascinating. I couldn't even begin to tell you what they are all about as the pure amount of data (cross referenced, documented and dated) is just too unwieldy to even wrap ones head around. Basic premise is that nothing is as it seems, everything is connected and the man behind the curtain is definately pulling the strings. These books are not for the faint of heart as one feels as though one has stepped into John Nash's world as so be ...more
Steve Werner
Very fascinating and dark journey, that uniquely deals with the confluence of government black budget programs, CIA mind control/MK Ultra, and the occult phenomenon. The author does a very convincing job of drawing connections between things you wouldn't think they exist, but they most certainly do. HP Lovecraft, Charles Manson, Scientology, CIA, devil worshipping cults, LA film industry, 60's counter culture, LSD, Kennedy assassination.
Sharon Scott
excelent book. first of three. need to read all three to get the whole concept. maybe surprise what "sinister forces" really are, not what you probably think. he backs up what he writes with clear, reliable facts from publish papers, books, congreesional hearings, as from own experience. he knows first hand some of the charachters he names in the book. it is not just a conspiricy book. but if you love this country as I do you will want to read this trilogy of real history not tought in school an ...more
huh ... Ok, well, extremely interesting read ... All over the board though, I barely recognized the end of the book compared to the beginning. Very informative, however, you can't take all the information at face value, further research suggested before or after reading. I think some of the connections made are stretches but reading about all the coincidences is interesting. I walked out of this book much more informed but not convinced.
I like this book. It covers a lot of ground. That's a good thing as you have to pull back from the micro details sometimes to get the "macro" or big picture.

The problem is that when you do that there are bound to be things mentioned, alluded to, or referenced as "fact" that may better be put in the "some say X, Y, or Z" catagory.

Still VERY worth reading.

This book remained very interesting all the way to the end.
Paul Baack
As frightening as this book is, it's always setting the table for the next book, which gets specifically into issues of specific presidents, cult leaders, captains of industry, and occult-centric Intelligence Community activities. Meticulously researched and presented in a very low-key, unsensationalistic manner, this isn't conspiracy theory as much as it is a dry recitation of known facts. Which are bad enough…
Introduction into the trilogy.
Google e.g. easily continues connection from colonel Corso, to his son, to Burt Rutan to Paul Allen to Edgar Mitchell.
