Museum of Hoaxes: A Collection of Pranks, Stunts, & Other Wonderful Stories Contrived for the Public from the Middle Ages to the New Millennium
Alex Boese (au). A remarkable collection based on the author’s popular Web site, this book is a fascinating historical tour of hundreds of documented hoaxes, many collected here for the first time. Read about the curiosities & cons of the most notorious hornswogglers & flimflam men of the 19th century; be astounded at the impostors, pretenders, & tricksters of the 20th century. The Queen of England, Jimmy Carter, the editors of The N.Y. Times -- no one is immune to the cunning of history’s hoaxers. It’s all here, from the origin of April Fools’ Day to Nixon’s final presidential bid in 1992, from the “War of the Worlds” to recent Internet hoaxes. Would these hoaxes fool you? Take the Gullibility Test & find out. Illustrations.
