Jay Feldman
America’s History of Hysteria

Our notions of democracy, freedom, and tolerance are threatened during political, social, and economic crises, says Jay Feldman-and this is nothing new. From the run-up to World War I through 9/11 and Arizona's anti-immigration movement, Feldman, author of Manufacturing Hysteria, finds a pattern of elected officials and private citizens alike inflaming American fears and prejudices to ostracize minorities, silence dissent, and stem civil rights—and he reminds us of the vigilance required to preserve our most basic ideals.
