"One of the most fascinating, illuminating and provocative social documents that have been brought to public attention for some time."
—New York Times Book Review
“[T]he primary scientific and historical significance of Cantril’s research with regard to the effect of the media is absolutely indisputable. This research continues to be regarded as one of the definitive works on the psychology of individual and collective panic reactions and as such is still worthy of being read today, either again or for the first time. . . . It is highly recommended”
—Gerd H. Hövelmann, Journal of Scientific Exploration
"The dramatic account brings into sharp focus those factors in the situation and from the individuals conducive to critical appraisal or contagious panic behavior."
