THE CULTURE OF FEAR Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things

by | Read by Barry Glassner

Contemporary Culture • 4.75 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

Do your palms grow cold and clammy when you board an airplane because the gruesome details of the last crash still live in your memory? Are you convinced that kidnapping is epidemic in the U.S.? Does the prospect of violent youths in your city drive you off the streets and to your local gun dealer? If so, you may well be subject to the culture of fear that author and reader Glassner describes in this audiobook. In example after example, the professorial voice of Glassner demonstrates how the media and government work hand in glove to fill the populace with anxiety over crime, disease, and other horrors promoted by the media. If you're keen on being debunked, this audiobook will systematically strip away your gullibility and possibly lead you to kill your television. D.J.B. 2005 Audie Award Finalist
