The Lucifer effect : understanding how good people turn evil by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )
48 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 2,955 libraries worldwide
What makes good people do bad things' How can moral people be seduced to act immorally' Where is the line separating good from evil, and who is in danger of crossing it' Renowned social psychologist Philip Zimbardo has the answers, and in The Lucifer Effect he explains how'and the myriad reasons why'we are all susceptible to the lure of "the dark side." Drawing on examples from history as well as his own trailblazing research, Zimbardo details how situational forces and group dynamics can work in concert to make monsters out of decent men and women. Zimbardo is perhaps best known as the creator of the Stanford Prison Experiment. Here, for the first time and in detail, he tells the full story of this landmark study, in which a group of college-student volunteers was randomly divided into "guards" and "inmates" and then placed in a mock prison environment. Within a week the study was abandoned, as ordinary college students were transformed into either brutal, sadistic guards or emotionally broken prisoners. By illuminating the psychological causes behind such disturbing metamorphoses, Zimbardo enables us to better understand a variety of harrowing phenomena, from corporate malfeasance to organized genocide to how once upstanding American soldiers came to abuse and torture Iraqi detainees in Abu Ghraib. He replaces the long-held notion of the "bad apple" with that of the "bad barrel"'the idea that the social setting and the system contaminate the individual, rather than the other way around. This is a book that dares to hold a mirror up to mankind, showing us that we might not be who we think we are. While forcing us to reexamine what we are capable of doing when caught up in the crucible of behavioral dynamics, though, Zimbardo also offers hope. We are capable of resisting evil, he argues, and can even teach ourselves to act heroically. Like Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem and Steven Pinker's The Blank Slate, The Lucifer Effect is a shocking, engrossing study that will change the way we view human behavior.

59 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in English and held by 1,488 libraries worldwide
In the summer of 1971, Philip Zimbardo, Craig Haney, and Curtis Banks carried out a psychological experiment to test a simple question: What happens when you put good people in an evil place -- does humanity win over evil, or does evil triumph? College student volunteers were pretested and randomly assigned to play the role of prisoner or guard in a simulated prison at Stanford University. This film uses archival footage, flashbacks, post-experiment interviews with the prisoners and guards, and comparisons with real prisons. It documents the study from the surprise arrests of the participants by city police, to the termination of the study after only 6 days. The Stanford Prison Study remains one of the most famous studies conducted in the field of Social Psychology

How do atrocity perpetrators explain and justify their violence? What is the impact of their murderous deeds--on them, on their victims, and on society? What memories of their atrocities do they admit and which become public history?

He rewarded her with a loaf of bread that she shared with her fellow prisoners--an act of generosity that would later save her life. Edie and her sister survived multiple death camps and the Death March. When the American troops liberated the camps in 1945 they found Edie barely alive in a pile of corpses. Edie spent decades struggling with flashbacks and survivor's guilt, determined to stay silent and hide from the past ... Today, at ninety years old, Edie is a renowned psychologist and speaker who specializes in treating patients suffering from traumatic stress disorders.
