Barkun cited in article on post-truth era in The Atlantic

Michael BarkunA Culture of Conspiracy, written by Professor Emeritus Michael Barkun, was cited in The Atlantic article, "How America Lost Its Mind." In his book, Barkun writes "such subject-specific areas as crank science, conspiracist politics, and occultism are not isolated from one another," but rather "they are interconnected. Someone seeking information on UFOs, for example, can quickly find material on antigravity, free energy, Atlantis studies, alternative cancer cures, and conspiracy." 08/08/17
