Description
In his vital, engaging, sometimes troubling story of modern America's struggle to live up to its ideals, Jay Feldman takes us from World War I, with its pre-war anti-German hysteria and its postwar persecution of radicals, through the Muslim-bashing following the September 11 attacks and Arizona's anti-immigration movement. Feldman traces a striking pattern of elected officials and private citizens manipulating American fears and prejudices to isolate minorities (ethnic, racial, political, religious, or sexual), silence dissent, and stem civil rights and liberties.

"A chilling overview of how American political culture has generated domestic enemies to justify massive infringements of rights.... Feldman's epilogue describes how much worse things have become in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.... We can be grateful for his account."SFChronicle
