Internet today Alex Ross, The New YorkerA winning mixture of history, biography, media criticism, and statistical analysis Broadcast Hysteria is rich with context and often dryly humorous detail Jason Heller, NPR A Brad Schwartz s well researched first book, which grew out of his honors thesis, challenges conventional wisdom He also deftly places Welles s caper in the perspective of the time, when

accounts the real people who listened in on October 30, 1938, to the news of a Martian invasion Long derided as naive and gullible, or dismissed as insignificant in number, they emerge here as self effacing, fearful, outraged, funny, and courageous in other words, a lot like people today Welles would be proud Mark Samels, executive producer, American Experience, PBSThere was no mass panic on the night of October 30, 1938 Yet many still believe a radio drama featuring Martian invaders incited mobs of Americans to flee their homes In Broadcast Hysteria, A Brad Schwartz clarifies misconceptions
