Product description


"Political Psychology addresses the nexus between politics and psychology- what leads leaders to lead, followers to follow? How can ordinary people perpetrate extraordinary evil? In Introduction to Political Psychology, 3rd ed. the authors deftly clarify a wide range of vexing problems, from leader personality to man’s inhumanity to man. An admirable introduction to the interdiscipline of political psychology."
―Jerrold M. Post, M.D., Director of Political Psychology at The George Washington University and author of Leaders and their Followers in a Dangerous World

"A tour de force introduction to the field of political psychology as viewed through the lens of both the mass public and political elites. The book demonstrates the relevance of individuals and groups to the understanding of how politics works."
―Margaret G. Hermann, Cramer Professor of Global Affairs, Director, Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs Maxwell School, Syracuse University

"The authors of this volume have done an outstanding job of producing a comprehensive, clearly written, accessible and up-to-date textbook in political psychology. This book is a ‘must read’ for those wishing to get a firm grasp of this dynamic field and expanding field."
―Jim Sidanius, Harvard University

Product Description

This comprehensive, user-friendly introductory textbook to political psychology explores the psychological origins of political behavior. The authors introduce readers to a broad range of theories, concepts, and case studies of political activity to illustrate that behavior. The book examines many patterns of political behaviors, including leadership, group behavior, voting, media effects, race, ethnicity, nationalism, social movements, terrorism, war, and genocide. It explores some of the most horrific things people do to each other, as well as how to prevent and resolve conflict – and how to recover from it.

The book contains numerous features to enhance understanding, including text boxes highlighting current and historical events to help students see the connection between the world around them and the concepts they are learning. Different research methodologies used in the discipline are employed, such as experimentation and content analysis. The third edition of the book has two new chapters, one on the media, and one on social movements.

This accessible and engaging introductory textbook is suitable as a primary text on a range of upper-level courses in political psychology, political behavior, and related fields, including policymaking.
