Ghosts . . . are they real spirits or just the stuff of scary stories? Scientists have yet to find any evidence spirits of the dead exist in our world, yet many people believe they do. Whatever our opinions, legends of ghosts, poltergeists, and hauntings exist in many cultures. At times helpful, at times terrifying, ghosts have a fearful grip on our imaginations.

In this sequel to The Haunting of America, national bestselling authors Joel Martin and William J. Birnes bring up to the present the story of how paranormal events influenced and sometimes even drove political events. In unearthing the roots of America's fascination with the ghosts, goblins, and demons that possess our imaginations and nightmares, Martin and Birnes show how the paranormal has driven America's political, public, and militarypolicies. The authors examine the social history of the United States through the lens of the paranormal and investigate the spiritual events that inspired momentous national decisions: UFOs that frightened the nation's military into launching nuclear bomber squadrons toward the Soviet Union, out-of-body experiences used to gather sensitive intelligence on other countries, and even spirits summoned to communicate with living politicians. The Haunting of Twentieth-Century America is a thrilling evidencebased exploration of the often unexpected influences of the paranormal on science, medicine, law, the government, the military, psychology, theology, death and dying, spirituality, and pop culture. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Experience America's secret history in the untold phenomena of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue... The scandals of the White House have always commanded attention, but little has been acknowledged of the documented paranormal events that have shaken its stately porticos for more than a century.

Kennedy reveal—after his death? • Why was Hillary Clinton compelled to channel the spirits of past First Ladies? • Which presidents admitted in private to have had UFO encounters? • What’s the source of the strange light emanating from the Rose Room? • Who—or what—is playing the haunted strains of phantom music in the private halls of the White House?
