Rumors, Race and Riots
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungAre race-related rumors rooted in the personality traits of the individual? Are they a kind of improvised news for a community? Do they come and go at random or form defi nite, recognizable patterns? Do the news media and other offi cial sources help spread rumors? And, are past rumors predictive of future rumors? For example, how do the King assassination rumors in 1968 compare with those during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2005, or to the ones during the Paris riots occurring in the same year?
