Current title is very long: The Culture of Fear: Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things: Crime, Drugs, Minorities, Teen Moms, Killer Kids, Mutant Microbes, Plane Crashes, Road Rage, & So Much More

Can the title of this book be truncated simply to The Culture of Fear ?

Alternatively The Culture of Fear: Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things

WorldCat uses the latter title.

Thank you.

Is that really all part of the title though?

I'd say it is. It doesn't look like a blurb.

But sub- subtitles do exist :)
