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
