THEM: Adventures with Extremists

From Booklist

The mysterious and elusive Bilderberg group is rumored to be the handful of elite men and women who secretly rule the world, appointing figureheads to pose as world leaders and passing down the group's decisions to them. It turns out, Ronson discovers, that many of the extremist groups who occasionally make the news (or the Jerry Springer Show) vehemently believe this conspiracy theory, though who exactly makes up the Bilderberg group is not so widely agreed upon. Observing and traveling with various fringe groups, including Islamic militants, neo-Nazis, surviving Koresh followers, and a KKK faction, Ronson follows a trail of clues that eventually leads him to a gathering of the supposed elite Bilderbergers, who are every bit as bizarre (if not more so,) than those by whom they are feared. Undoubtedly one of the most provocative books to be published recently, Them is at times funny, other times unsettling, but always astonishing. So difficult to accept are Ronson's narratives that any conclusions must be left up to the reader.
