A masterpiece. -- New Statesman
Brilliant. -- Psychology Today
Volunteers are invited to a scientific laboratory under the pretence of participating in a study about the effects of punishment on learning. They are instructed by an experimenter to administer an electric shock of increasing intensity every time a 'learner', strapped into an electric chair, makes a mistake. How many, if any, would go right up the scale to 450 Volts?
The implications of Stanley Milgram's extraordinary findings (up to 65% of subjects administered the full shock) are devastating. From the Holocaust to Vietnam, Obedience to Authority goes some way towards explaining how ordinary people can commit the most horrific of crimes if placed under the influence of a malevolent authority.
Stanley Milgram's classic and controversial social psychology title has been unavailable in the UK for many years.
