Enemies of freedom : understanding right-wing authoritarianism by Bob Altemeyer( Book )

The authoritarian specter by Bob Altemeyer( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on results from a prize-winning research program, this book gives insight into how authoritarian minds are created and how they operate, and how their failings and vulnerabilities produce submission and aggression. A search for authoritarians on the left finds very few. Instead, studies reveal a strong concentration of authoritarians among religious fundamentalists and conservative politicians. These and many other powerful findings explain a persistent sentiment in our democracy to submit to "a man on horseback," to attack those who are different, to march in lock-step. This compelling, timely work advances our scientific understanding of authoritarianism on many fronts and deserves a wide readership

Amazing conversions : why some turn to faith & others abandon religion by Bob Altemeyer( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking study, based on a survey of over four thousand students at two Canadian universities, uncovers fascinating new data on sudden shifts toward religious and nonreligious belief. Amazing Conversions explores, for the first time, the reasons why converts join and apostates go. Social psychologists Bob Altemeyer and Bruce Hunsberger winnow out a small number of "Amazing Apostates" and "Amazing Believers," the former being those who, despite a strong religious upbringing, abandon their faith, while the latter embrace religion, usually fundamentalist Christianity, after having been raised in homes that were indifferent to religion or overtly antireligious." "This book solves "the mystery of the amazing converts" by presenting their stories in their own words. As you read their explanations of what happened to them, you will notice the themes that reappear in one life after another. And you may find the ultimate explanations of these amazing cases as surprising as the cases themselves."--BOOK JACKET
