Popular Delusions: How Social Conformity Molds Society and Politics

by Stephen Coleman


"Thought-provoking... an interesting analysis of the benefits and dangers of conformity, pointing out that policies encouraging cultural diversity may well backfire. Recommended." - CHOICE

"The first seven chapters offer a dense demonstration, with data, figures, tables and numbers, but the last chapter has a different tone, reading almost like an essay, with interesting concluding remarks and new hypotheses such as, for example, how do people identify with a social group and adopt certain norms? While it is often difficult to show correlations and connections between individuals and collective voting behaviour, it is nevertheless stimulating to read and question these issues, as does this book." - Political Studies
