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.

A reminder to take the unsubstantiated doomsday claims of the media and vested interests with a large chunk of rock salt. Written prior to 9/11, but just as relevant now.
