3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bill Tell on 1 Oct 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This thought provoking book is more about the political as an element of psychotherapy than about political psychology. I am a political analyst, with reasonable understanding of political psychology, rather than a psychoanalyst. There were some insights here for the likes of me, mostly about how psychotherapy might contribute to political discourse and vice versa, and also about Jung and Naziism. Much of the rest was lost on me since it discussed psychotherapeutical discourse unfamiliar and not entirely relevant to my research - but that was not the fault of the author! I imagine it to be quite stimulating for psychotherapists but am not qualified to make that judgement.

Love it so far... 14 Sep 2009
By Sarah E. Stevens - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have only read 70 pages so far, but this book seems like a perfect educational tool for what is going on in today's society. Political/emotional explosions in politics&culture(esp. in the U.S. right now) go much deeper than simple policy opinions, deep into the psyche and the imagery with which we identify as human beings on an individual as well as collective scale.

Yawn. 30 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
A fascinating topic, not helped by a desultory and superficial presentation. The field is inviting: politics, perhaps one of the great venues for projection, begs psychological insight. It's obviously extraordinarily difficult to produce the kind of insight which does justice to the field. This book's problem is not its prose, which is o.k. Rather, it exemplifies the great problem that attends to such analyses: it resorts to assertion rather than data and thus becomes a long document of personal opinion. One may agree, or not, but ultimately this seems less interesting and less satisfying.
