This is book number 1 in the Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft (Paperback) series.

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 Not a work of speculative history, this exposé is founded on primary source material and historical documents.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."

Peter Levenda has researched the material for this book over the course of 25 years, visiting more than 40 countries and gaining access to temples, prisons, military installations, and government documents. He is the author of The Secret TempleStairway to Heaven, and Unholy Alliance. He lives in Miami. Jim Hougan is an award-winning investigative journalist, an Alicia Patterson and Rockefeller Foundation fellow, and the former Washington editor of Harper's magazine. He has reported for NPR's All Things Considered and has produced documentary films for 60 Minutes and Frontline. He is also the coauthor of a series of books with his wife under the pseudonym John Case, including the New York Times bestseller The Genesis Code. He lives in Afton, Virginia.

“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
