First published by Cornell in 1971, The Fear of Conspiracy brings together eighty-five speeches, documents, and writings—the authors of which range from George Washington to Stokely Carmichael—that illustrate the role played in American history by the fear of conspiracy and subversion. This book, documenting two centuries of conspiracy-mongering (1763-1966), highlights the American tendency to search for subversive enemies and to construct terrifying dangers from fragmentary and highly circumstantial evidence.
