"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
