About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Handbook of Political Psychology provides a comprehensive review of the psychology of political behaviour from an international perspective. Its coverage spans from foundational approaches to political psychology, including the evolutionary, personality and developmental roots of political attitudes, to contemporary challenges to governance, including populism, hate speech, conspiracy beliefs, inequality, climate change and cyberterrorism. Each chapter features cutting-edge research from internationally renowned scholars who offer their unique insights into how people think, feel and act in different political contexts. By taking a distinctively international approach, this handbook highlights the nuances of political behaviour across cultures and geographical regions, as well as the truisms of political psychology that transcend context. Academics, graduate students and practitioners alike, as well as those generally interested in politics and human behaviour, will benefit from this definitive overview of how people shape – and are shaped by – their political environment in a rapidly changing twenty-first century.

    • Provides an overview of some of the most pressing issues facing democratic governance in contemporary society
    • Looks beyond the North American context to feature international perspectives, thus broadening our understanding of how political psychology operates in different contexts
    • Offers an up-to-date review of the literature, while also providing suggestions for future research

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘Danny Osborne and Chris Sibley have assembled what is arguably the most comprehensive, expansive, and engaging handbook concerning political psychology to be found anywhere in the literature. This handbook, which must be regarded as a tour de force, consists of major contributions from both ‘rising stars' and more senior scholars within the field of political psychology. This handbook is a must-read for anyone desiring to deepen their insights into the dynamics of human political behavior.' Jim Sidanius, Harvard University, USA

    ‘We live at a moment in history where political information (and misinformation) can be disseminated at lightning speed, creating and polarizing partisans. Understanding political behavior, divides, and progress in this context is a fascinating and important task, but one that can be frustrating. It is here that this handbook comes in, distilling decades of research on political psychology in a comprehensive volume. Unifying fresh and established experts, this book sheds light on issues that are affecting us on the ground: populism, identity, conflict, and change. Consequently, it is an invaluable resource for those studying, or interested in, the psychology of political behavior.' Fiona Kate Barlow, The University of Queensland, Australia
