Allowing for the usual fruitcakes and conspiracy theorists in the lunatic fringe, but believing that people are becoming increasingly paranoid, Dowbiggin "shows how paranoid fantasy moved from the extreme right to the very center of politics and culture in the United States and Canada," and suggests that "delusional thinking has displaced reason and wisdom as the basis of conventional thought." (or maybe that's what they *want* you to think, eh?). Green cloth, 230 pages (including notes on sources, index). Bumped corners, in rubbed/scuffed dust jacket w/a hint of wear to corners/spine ends. A nice unread copy.
