Keith A. Livers is an associate professor in the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.
"Anyone interested in Russian media, conspiracy culture, and
broader Russian cultural context will find this book valuable and
at times quite entertaining."
*Eurasian Geography and Economics*
"Conspiracy Culture asks its readers not merely to think about conspiracy, but to reconsider the evolving contemporary Russian cultural canon in terms of the conspiratorial thinking that is part of its foundation."
*The Russian Review, Vol. 80, No. 3*
"Livers’s book will be among the popular studies to understand what brought Russia to the war and where to look for clues to avoid such disasters in the future."
