Single-volume book on conspiracies

I'm looking for a good book that discusses secret societies and/or conspiracy theories, but does so with at least some objectivity and academic rigor (footnotes, reliable sources, etc.)

Bonus points if it's a fun read. I really enjoyed "Men Who Stare at Goats" but would like something a little more in-depth.
This question arose because I came across "A Secret History of the World" at a large chain bookstore. It looks sort of intriguing, but most of the reviews complain that there are no footnotes to speak of. I suspect my best bet might be clicking around Wikipedia.
