The psychology of social movements by Hadley Cantril( Book )

88 editions published between 1941 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hadley Cantril looked beyond the surface of social movements to examine the psychology behind them. What motivates people to follow an untried leader? What does the social environment do to make people suggestible? What are people thinking about, puzzled about, and hoping for when they lose themselves in some cause that seems strange or esoteric to the observer? Part I gives a systematic framework for interpretation of social movements. Part II examines specific social movements: the lynching mob, the kingdom of Father Divine, the Oxford Group, the Townsend Plan, and the Nazi Party." "Cantril uses the technique of phenomenological analysis to straighten out the tangle of mental contest and motivation found in the individual who is adjusting to the social world. He notes that "the principles of some social movements are 'wrong,' those of others are more nearly 'right.' Some are cruel illusions accepted by bewildered people who follow false prophets: others uncompromisingly base policies on assumptions which the psychologist knows are untrue; some would completely prohibit the search for an understanding of man and his social world; some unnecessarily destroy the capacity and talent of man in obtaining his objectives."" "The Psychology of Social Movements sets forth an outline by which social movements can be judged and their outcomes predicted. Cantril lays the responsibility for making these evaluations at the feet of social scientists who are best equipped to do so based on knowledge rather than ignorance, bias, or prejudice. This volume will be of continuing importance to sociologists and political scientists as well as psychologists and anyone interested in the mechanisms that drive social movements."--BOOK JACKET
The invasion from Mars : a study in the psychology of panic ; with the complete script of the famous Orson Welles broadcast by Hadley Cantril( Book )

43 editions published between 1940 and 2014 in English and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Halloween night 1938, Orson Welles broadcast a radio adaptation of the H.G. Wells fantasy, The War of the Worlds. What listeners heard sounded so realistic that at least a million were frightened by word that "strange creatures" from Mars had landed in central New Jersey and were "unleashing a deadly assault." Several thousand were so terrified they ran into the streets, drove away in their cars, or called the police for information about how to escape. Why did so many panic when the circumstances reported were so improbable? That is just the question Hadley Cantril, then a young social psychologist, set out to answer." Originally published in 1940, The Invasion from Mars remains a classic. The broadcast provided a unique real-life opportunity to explore why the relatively new medium of radio could have such an effect. Using a mix of research methods, Cantril shows that the impact of the broadcast had less to do with what went out over the air than with the "standards of judgment" people did or did not use in evaluating what they were hearing. This book is of continuing value to those interested in communications and mass behavior."--Publisher
Gauging public opinion by Hadley Cantril( Book )

46 editions published between 1943 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book furnishes the first systematic examination of the highly important and widely misunderstood new methods of surveying public opinion. The studies reported were done by Princeton's Office of Public Opinion Research under the direction of Hadley Cantril, one of the leading social psychologists in the country. The book pioneers in stimulating fashion some of the many problems involved in the determination of public opinion by modern techniques. Originally published in 1944. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

The psychology of ego-involvements : social attitudes & identifications by Muzafer Sherif( Book )

35 editions published between 1947 and 1966 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book on the psychology of ego-involvements we are attacking a problem which it seems crucial to solve if we are ever to acquire a scientifically defensible account of man's relationship to the world around him with all its natural laws, its technological developments, and its social products. Here we are only able to sketch in bold relief what appears to be the psychology of ego-involvements. Much more must be added later to complete the account. But it seems to us that the broad outline presented here will accommodate this further work without any major alterations. Evidence from a wide variety of sources, including studies from the experimental laboratory, investigations of everyday life behavior, public-opinion surveys, observational studies of children and adolescents, sociological data, and field material of anthropologists and ethnologists, has almost fallen into place of its own accord. Although we have cited rather extensive references, our job has been more one of selection than accumulation of data: in nearly every chapter, we have had to satisfy ourselves with the inclusion of only a few of the many reports, observations, or experiments that might have been mentioned. Those who are familiar with the various areas we have touched on will know the vast literature it is possible to tap"--Pref. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Perception, a transactional approach by William H Ittelson( Book )

21 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a simple straightforward exposition, the authors outline the transactional approach to perception. By design, they avoid polemic in favor of the continuous statement of their basic position. Here is no controversy, but probably a very controversial statement--for the viewpoint has only recently been developed and is by no means universally accepted. Though most of the points made can be buttressed by experiments and observations drawn from "common" experience, the authors have preferred the clarity of a briefer statement which makes it easier to identify the major aspects of their analysis to a longer essay which would include the supporting evidence. An appended reading list will help those who wish to seek further in this approach. The authors review in order the nature of perception, how it is studied, its development, and perception in operation. The implications of this outline for the development of scientific psychology and for a reappraisal of personal perspectives are imponderable"--Preface.
