America is a country gripped by fear. In this startling and widely acclaimed book, Barry Glassner exposes the people and organizations that manipulate our perceptions and profit from our anxieties. These peddlers of fear-politicians, advocacy groups, and TV newsmagazines, among others-cost Americans dearly, weighing us down with needless worries and wasting billions of dollars. Insightful and reassuring-and now with a thought-provoking discussion guide-The Culture of Fear diagnoses the predominant pathology of our age and provides a passionate rallying cry for a return to rationality.
