The Lucifer effect : understanding how good people turn evil by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )
50 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 3,051 libraries worldwide
What makes good people do bad things? Where is the line separating good from evil, and who is in danger of crossing it? Social psychologist Philip Zimbardo 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 research, Zimbardo details how situational forces and group dynamics can work in concert to make monsters out of decent people. By illuminating the psychological causes behind such disturbing metamorphoses, Zimbardo enables us to better understand a variety of phenomena, from corporate malfeasance to organized genocide. 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. Yet we are capable of resisting evil, he argues, and can even teach ourselves to act heroically.--From publisher description

Quiet rage : the Stanford prison study by Stanford University( visu )
50 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in English and held by 1,340 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

Psychology and life by Floyd Leon Ruch( Book )
38 editions published between 1937 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 240 libraries worldwide
"The aim of Psychology and Life is to use solid scientific research to combat psychological misconceptions. In our experience as teachers, one of the most reliable occurrences on the first day of introductory psychology is the throng of students who push forward at the end of class to ask, in essence, Will this class teach me what I need to know? My mother is taking Prozac: Will we learn what it does? Are you going to teach us how to study better? I need to put my son in daycare to come back to school. Is that going to be all right for him? What should I do if I have a friend talking about suicide? We take comfort that each of these questions has been addressed by rigorous empirical research. Psychology and Life is devoted to providing students with scientific analyses of their foremost concerns. As a result, the features of Psychology and Life support a central theme: psychology as a science, with a focus on applying that science to your students' lives."--Provided by publisher
