Revue de presse

If you are interested in how public rumours emerge and spread, this well written book offers good analytical tools and insights. It looks in depth at a number of stories which are 'too good to be false' to show how they play into wider public anxiety. (Charles Crawford former British diplomat)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Soon after 9/11, wild rumors began to spread: that Arab-Americans were celebrating publicly, that some people had been warned, that politicians knew all along. The Global Grapevine reveals how-through our everyday thoughts and conversations, and the rumors we spread--we grapple with the new global world. Drawn from diverse sources, the book illuminates urban legends like the claim that a certain t-shirt with a Chinese pictogram brands the wearer as a prostitute, conspiracy theories such as the "9/11 Truth Movement," or stories of tourists infected with AIDS by locals. These rumors, the authors argue, reflect our anxieties and fears about contact with foreign cultures--how we believe foreign competition to be poisoning the domestic economy and foreign immigration to be eroding American values. Focusing on the threat posed by terrorism, the impact of immigration, the risks involved in international trade, and the dangers faced by naive tourism, the book provides a broad survey of the most widely circulated rumors and examines what these tales reveal about contemporary society.

To understand rumor is to understand ourselves. 21 juin 2011
Par L. Milligan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The subtitle of the book is why rumors of terrorism, immigration and trade matter. Why they matter is what makes this book so compelling. Rumors have led to actions, our authors tell us as they explore the historical threads of current legends. And those actions have not always been pretty, which is why it is important to both recognize rumors as such when we hear or read them and turn on our critical thinking caps. Among other things, the book provides a detailed account of turmoil in Hazleton, Pennsylvania when an influx of Latino migrants moved there attracted by jobs at a new meatpacking plant. Their large numbers began to change the character of the town, fueling rumors that set old townspeople against new, inspired the establishment of English only laws, and put the mayor of this small city in the national spotlight. In another chapter we learn how rumors related to the global trafficking of body parts have become widespread in poorer, less developed countries and so widely believed by some that they've become actionable. Unwitting tourists from wealthy countries have found themselves chased and attacked by protective residents after having innocently shown affectionate interest in the indigenous children. Residents of big, sophisticated cities are not immune to falling prey to rumors either as is described in recounting some of the rumors the attack on the World Trade Center spawned and the conspiracy theories that followed. The authors do more than recount these events, they provide the background necessary to understand why these and other rumors are believed.

Bought this book for a class. If it had not been a required reading, I would have stopped reading it about 1/4 of the way through. Not enjoyable, in my opinion.
