Political Psychology Synopsis

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
