Acclaimed local author featured on KDVS

By From page A4 | September 1, 2011

Jay Feldman, an acclaimed writer and Davis resident, will be featured in a live radio interview on KDVS at 5 p.m. Friday. He will discuss his latest book, “Manufacturing Hysteria,” a history of scapegoating, surveillance and secrecy in modern America. It is available on Pantheon Press.

Among the praise it received, Kirkus Reviews writes: “Penetrating account of xenophobia and the officially sanctioned persecution of minorities and the politically undesirable. … Feldman is an attentive historian, unearthing many disturbing, forgotten examples of official malfeasance. … An alternate history rife with violence and class oppression, presented with rigor and detail.”

Tune in to the interview at 90.3 FM or listen online at www.kdvs.org.
