Political Psychology by Howard Lavine


Political Psychology by Howard Lavine

Political psychology is an interdisciplinary field in which psychological concepts and methods are used to test theories about elite and mass political behaviour. The field draws on a diverse set of disciplinary sources, including anthropology, neuroscience, history, behavioural genetics, psychoanalysis, as well as all branches of psychology. This collection brings together this diverse body of work, organizing it and distilling it into a single vital reference source. Its aim is to provide a definitive set of classic and contemporary readings representing all theoretical, methodological and epistemological approaches to the study of the political psychology, as well as to provide extensive coverage of the myriad areas of political behaviour from a psychological perspective. Volume One: Theoretical Approaches Volume Two: Public Opinion and Mass Political Behaviour Volume Three: International Relations and the Psychology of Political Elites Volume Four: Intergroup Relations and Political Violence

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
