The Culture of Fear
Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong ThingsBook - 2009
In the age of 9/11, the War on Terror, financial collapse, and around-the-clock coverage of child abductions, our society is defined by fear. Glassner shows that it is our perception of danger that has increased, not the actual level of risk, and he exposes the price we pay for social panic.
