Reviews

"A superb analysis of American paranoia...terrific, measured, objective."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Prepare to be amazed."--Jeet Heer, author of In Love with Art
"Free-floating fear and half-baked ideas about what's really going on have been a more significant part of American history than is generally accepted, according to Jesse Walker's thorough, meticulously researched book."--Vice
"Oddly entertaining...Walker quickly demolishes [Richard Hofstadter's "The Paranoid Style in American Politics]. It's all too rare to come upon a writer willing to attack the sacred cows of the right and left with equal amounts of intelligence and flair."--Los Angeles Times
"First there was A People's History of the United States. Now there's a paranoid's history, with Jesse Walker revealing that normal, sensible citizens have been conspiracy nuts ever since our nation's beginning."--Debbie Nathan, author of Sybil Exposed
