Dr. Mark L. Mirabello, author and a professor of history at Shawnee State University in the USA, has served as a visiting professor of history at Nizhny Novgorod University in Russia.

Mirabello's area of expertise is the "outlaw" history on the "frontiers and margins" of human civilization. He lectures on Alternative Religions and Cults, Secret Societies, Terrorism and Crime, "Banned Books," Afterlife Concepts in World History, Fascist Europe and Nazi Germany, Myths and Legends, Intellectual History, and other subjects.

His publications deal with the supernatural (A Traveler's Guide to the Afterlife: Traditions and Beliefs on Death, Dying, and What Lies BeyondThe Odin Brotherhood and The Crimes of Jehovah), the unnatural (The Cannibal Within), and the natural (Handbook for Rebels and Outlaws).

Mirabello's current project is a new book on "Secret Societies and Conspiracies."

Some of his works have been translated in to Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Mirabello has appeared on the History Channel, discussing "deadly cults" in the series called Ancient Aliens (and in America's Book of Secrets), and he has appeared with Professor Noam Chomsky in M.A. Littler's maverick film on freedom, The Kingdom of Survival.

Mirabello was a featured guest for an hour-long interview on afterlife concepts on Open Minds.  The show, hosted by Regina Meredith, appears on the Gaia Television Network.

Mirabello has been a featured guest on several syndicated radio programs and podcasts, including Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, The Conspiracy Show with Richard Syrett, Beyond Reality Radio with Jason Hawes, Darkness Radio with Dave Schrader, Tha Talks with Paul Obertelli and David Parry, The Farkas Files with David Farkas, and many others.
