For this year’s beach read, Stanley Milgram’s Obedience to Authority promises to deliver a sure shock to your system.
Old school PDers might remember Obedience to Authority first being mentioned in September 2014’s Book Club pick The Most Dangerous Superstition, and frankly, it’s about time we got around to reading it.
The Ease of Obedience
245 pages cover the results of Milgram’s 1960’s Yale experiment, where an individual was hooked up to an electronic shock device, while a participant was brought in, and told to turn it on.
