A Labor of Love

by prilisky on Apr 26, 2007

Milgram still exercises a great fascination worldwide, and yet is hardly ever mentioned in standard histories of psychology in proportion to the effect he has had on both academic and popular culture. The Man Who Shocked the World remedies this lack. It is a finely detailed and accurate picture of Milgram, his milieu, and his times. From interviews with many eminent contemporaries of Milgram and painstaking archival research, much of it in Milgram's papers, Blass has constructed a lively narrative that captures the actuality and immediacy of the research process in its political and social context. This book is essential for anyone wishing to understand the relation of psychology to its surrounding culture.
