About the Authors
  • Citizens and Politics: Perspectives from Political Psychology brings together some of the current research on citizen decision making. It addresses the questions of citizen political competence from different political psychology perspectives. Some of the authors in this volume look to affect and emotions to determine how people reach political judgments, others to human cognition and reasoning. Still others focus on perceptions or basic political attitudes such as political ideology. Several demonstrate the impact of values on policy preferences. The collection features chapters from some of the most talented political scientists in the country.

    • Contributions from top scholars in the field of political psychology
    • Chapters are well integrated and work well off of one another
    • Includes a comprehensive array of perspectives

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...an excellent overview of the political psychology perspective. ...this collection demonstrates clearly where political psychology stands today, how it should proceed in the future, and why it is relevant to the discipline of political science." Journal of Politics

    "The studies in this book are intended to represent the best of the marriage of modern psychological research and the analysis of public opinion formation and expression. Although technical, the writing is generally good, and the research seems indeed to be among the best empirical work being done in the area today. Recommended for graduate students, professionals, and research libraries." Choice

    "James Kuklinski has assembled a remarkably valuable set of articles addressing the general question of citizens' political competence and political decision making.... if you are looking for the most innovative, cutting-edge articles on how citizens make sense of politics, there would be no better place to begin than this work." Perspectives on Politics
