America is a melting pot -- a coming together of different peoples from different countries, religions, ethnicities and ideologies. It began with immigration and it moves forward with it. But it's never been easy being different in America.

Author Jay Feldman's new book takes a look at how difficult it has been for every kind of American minority you can imagine. His book is called Manufacturing Hysteria: A History of Scapegoating, Surveillance and Secrecy in Modern America and he spoke with New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi about the history of American hysteria.
