When prophecy fails by Leon Festinger( Book )

30 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1954 Leon Festinger, a brilliant young social psychologist in the process of inventing a new theory of human behavior-the theory of cognitive dissonance-infiltrated a cult who believed the end of the world was only months away. How would these people feel when their prophecy remained unfulfilled? Would they admit the error of their prediction, or would they, as Festinger predicted, readjust their reality to make sense of the new circumstances? Not only is When Prophecy Fails of great historical importance, but it is also a surprisingly touching account of what happens to ordinary people under extraordinary circumstances

Deviancy; the psychology of being different by Jonathan L Freedman( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deviancy: The Psychology of Being Different discusses the effects of deviancy on behavior. The book describes the effect of deviancy per se, in no reference to any particular deviant characteristic. The authors explain the methods they used in this study, as well as some checks made on the study to insure accuracy. Deviants prefer to associate with others of their kind due to fear of rejection, and they tended not to reveal their deviancy. The authors also discuss how deviants and non-deviants react and treat each other, and the degree of aggression that will be shown to a member of either gro

When prophecy fails : a social and psychological study of a modern group that predicted the destination of the world by Leon Festinger( Book )

4 editions published between 1956 and 1967 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The behaviour of a small group of people who believe that they have been forewarned of the impending end of the world would be dismissed by many social scientists as interesting but hardly researchable. The authors of this book are to be commended, not only for undertaking a difficult task, but for doing it remarkably well...Using the participant observer method, this research team collected an impressive body of data in the brief span of two months. Their research resulted in convincing, if not definitive, confirmation of their hypotheses. At the same time, it constitutes a stimulating example of the adaptation of method to a significant subject, rather than the selection of the research topic because it fits the latest fads in methodology." [American Sociological Review]
