    Overview

    Summary
    "This book is a fascinating introduction to Stanley Milgram, best known for his obedience study in which he persuaded his subjects to administer electric shocks to what they thought were fellow subjects. Lunt explores Milgram's influence in social psychology and how he undercut the traditional notion that individuals should be seen as rational autonomous beings"--Provided by publisher.
