In The Lucifer Effect , renowned 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 trailblazing research, Zimbardo details how situational forces and group dynamics can work in concert to make monsters out of decent men and women.

Another two colleges join the growing list of adoptions for The Lucifer Effect! The University of Nevada, Reno’s Gender, Race and Identity Dept has chosen the book for its fall course and Notre Dame de Namur University has selected it for a Political Psychology course.
