Writer, historian, and professor Richard Hofstadter's influential essay "The Paranoid Style in American Politics" continues to reverberate today, perhaps more than ever in a time of alternative facts, post-truth, and fake news. This book brings together 7 of his essays. The title one is of most interest, but all are worthwhile (the rise of "pseudo-conservatism," Barry Goldwater, American imperialism), if some of the original context may be hazy.
