Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 259-260. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1996-98409-000) turns our attention back to the childhood roots of mass political attitudes, in the style of Harold Lasswell, the authoritarian personality, and other practitioners of personality and politics. Its central proposition concerns the long-term political effects of harsh childhood physical discipline. The strength of the book lies perhaps in the perspective it offers and in its fulsome development of a provocative hypothesis. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
