Editorial Reviews


Why do people join extremist groups and engage in terrorist acts? What are the psychological consequences of rising social, political and economic uncertainty around the world? This excellent volume by Hogg and Blaylock addresses these and related questions in a timely collection of chapters written by leading scholars. It is a must read for social scientists and students interested in the psychology of uncertainty and terrorism.
-Brenda Major, University of California Santa Barbara

The editors have assembled a distinguished group of scholars who, in an impressive collection of empirically-based chapters, illuminate the psychology of extremism. The central theme that extremism can be rooted in many normal social psychological processes is provocative, with significant scholarly and practical implications. This work offers valuable insights, complementing analyses from other disciplines, into a timely international issue.
—-John F. Dovidio, Yale University

A fascinating state-of-the-art overview on the relation between extremism and uncertainty by a top-of-art set of scholars! This is a rich collection of coherent yet at the same time diverging perspectives.
—-Bertjan Doosje , University of Amsterdam

This theoretically diverse collection illustrates lucidly how uncertainty may give rise to extremism in many forms, from self-destructive acts of adolescents, through political behavior, to heightened moral affirmation and acts of terrorism. A superb volume.
—-Miles Hewstone, Professor of Social Psychology, University of Oxford, UK

Since September 11 a generation of researchers has been playing catch-up in trying to understand the psychology of extremism. This volume represents a huge step forward in that process.
—-Matthew Hornsey, University of Queensland

From the Back Cover

In the modern world, extremism is a highly topical and rapidly growing field of scholarship and inquiry. Fundamentalist religions and radical political ideologies spread hatred and sponsor terror; cults prey on the vulnerable; pained adolescents wreak havoc on society; ethnic and cultural groups dehumanize others to the point of genocide. Understanding the social conditions and individual psychologies that facilitate these behaviours is one of humanity's greatest challenges. The lack of stability that surrounds us - from economic crises to national conflicts to natural disasters- plays a definite role in promoting extremist behavior.  Extremism and the Psychology of Uncertainty presents the most cutting edge scientific research on the relationship between uncertainty and extremism. Contributions from leading scholars in social psychology, developmental psychology, health psychology, social neuroscience, political psychology, leadership, and religion offer illuminating insights into the links between these phenomena. Accessible and thought-provoking, Extremism and the Psychology of Uncertainty adds immeasurably to our understanding of the psychology behind a reality of everyday life in the twenty-first century.
