Understanding Angry Groups : Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Their Motivations and Effects on Society - image 1 of 1

About this item

The 19 chapters in this volume examine the phenomenon of angry groups from various perspectives. They first draw on the social sciences and humanities to look at dimensions of difference among individuals, cognitive processes in terms of attribution theory, group polarization, women, and veterans, as well as biblical stories of anger, gender and racial issues in film, and youth development in Harry Potter. The second section explores historical and geo-political views on angry exile groups in the aftermath of the French and Russian Revolutions, angry American right wing communities like Neo-Nazis and the radical right (in the context of The Turner Diaries), the use of anger in the campaign against the Affordable Care Act, Cubans in Florida, the America role in Latin America, economic issues in Greece and northern European nations, economic and environmental issues in Nigeria, the Iranian Islamic Republic, the Tibetan Independence Movement, and terrorism. Contributors work in these fields in the US. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
