One of followers of this blog is a young, smart and beautiful woman. Her name is Thalia Magioglou.
She lives in Paris and we’ve never met. However, i follow her blog, we correspond and we became friends.
Recently she sent me a very interesting book. It’s title: “Culture and Political Psychology: A Societal Perspective.” Thalia is an editor and one of the authors of this book.
I read the book very slowly due to two reasons:
1) it is not easy to read (I am not a psychologist and did not even know that political psychology exists);
2) after each chapter I am doing my best to understand what an author said, how good was her/his research, what are conclusions.
Then I decide my reaction to a particular chapter. I don’t agree with everything but it is normal.
So far I read only 121 pages of 448. I found that the book is very interesting.
It’s a pity that it was not available 40 years ago and that leaders of many countries did not read it. So many terrible mistakes in all areas could be prevented!
I am going to tell more about ideas of this book and to answer to comments to my post HOW BAD ARE AMERICA AND CAPITALISM? in future posts.
I will also let you know summarised results of your choices of my pictures in several latest posts and will comment on them using information from the Thalia’s book.
Finally, I want to tell you that I went on Google to see if there is any review of this book. I was not surprised that somebody considered it one of the best books of 2014.
