"In 1841 a Scottish journalist named Charles Mackay published a study of mass hysteria titled 'Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.' Mackay analyzed a wide variety of popular pathologies in his entertaining tome, including financial panics, medical quackery, alchemy, and witch crazes. He wanted to know why so many people choose to believe so much that is false and potentially deadly." (02/17/12)
