Political psychology, as the study of the personal aspect of political processes, has a very long history, but it is only in the last decade that it has taken shape as a systematic discipline. This is the first book by a single author to provide a comprehensive account of relevant work in the field. The studies which Professor Davies reviews range from technical psychoanalysis to clinical and social psychology; from political science to management; from personality theory to general and political biography; and are fully international in scope. The order he bestows on them is original and instructive and as a sustained effort of critical discrimination the narrative is impressive and intellectually exciting. Throughout, the reader is made aware of a world of exploration and discover in the process of being opened up.
