This is a great book. It explores dogmatism as actually a study of belief systems, not as proscribed beliefs such as left or right, right or wrong, liberal or conservative but more to the point of the structure of beliefs and the characteristics the make up different levels of dogmatism. Some of the technical data is a challenging read but much of the rest of the book deals with dogmatism that includes all belief systems and not as an attack on people or some systems that appear overly dogmatic.

I used this book in the 1960's as part of my research on the authoritarian personality in the 1960's. I am glad to see it is still in circulation.

It's been about 25 years since I first picked up this book in the university library. Over the years it has been a touchstone for many discussions about the way people think about issues like race, status, and order. The discussion about how racists see good and bad 'blacks' (not the term used in the book) based on their system of values is creepy and disturbing, but I have also found it to be honest and forthright in ways that are uncomfortable and challenge assumptions about how opinions form and the way they persist. It is a very worthwhile read and one that you will not likely forget, even after 25 years.
