Panic Attacks by Robert E. Bartholomew

Book Description

Robert Bartholomew and Hilary Evans, both experts in the history of unexplained phenomena, examine the ability of the media to whip up a panic and our tendency to fall victim to mass delusion and hysteria in this entertaining and searching book. Among some of the popular delusions they discuss are America's 'kissing bug' scare of 1899; Seattle's atomic fallout fiasco of 1954; the phantom slasher of Tapei in 1956; Belgium's recent Coca-Cola poisoning scare and the 'mad gasser' of Mattoon. Indeed, truth is stranger than fiction.
