5.0 étoiles sur 5 Right-Wing Authoritarianism 11 avril 2000
Par Don Laird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Winner of the Prize for Behavioral Science Research in 1986 and a follow-up to his first book, <Right-Wing Authoritarianism> of 1981, <Enemies of Freedom> was written out of "apprehension that there may be a vast potential for the acceptance of right-wing totalitarian rule in countries such as Canada and the United States."
An experimental scientist who writes in a very easy-to-read way, professor Altemeyer (Univ. of Manitoba) has reworked the concept of authoritarianism, removing it from the Freudian view into a research-based social learning theory.
Authoritarianism is made of up three attitudinal clusters: submission to authorities, aggressiveness directed in accordance with the sanctions of authorities, and adhering to social conventions. Authoritarianism is researched with respect to topics such as punishment, prejudice, religion, political affiliation, education, and social status.
Important questions are considered in chapters, including why a person becomes authoritarian, how their aggression develops, the influence of religion, its relation to politics, and how we can protect ourselves from authoritarianism. Authoritarian aggressiveness seems to be related to a)fear of a dangerous world and b)self righteousness. We can help protect against authoritarianism by emphasizing the value of freedom, encouraging higher education especially in the liberal arts. The media can help by its coverage of crime, and religions can help by devaluing self righteousness.
Altemeyer includes the details of how he did his research and the individual questions in his survery forms, so if readers want to go survey all their relatives and friends (in secret!) they can!
If you're interested in people and personality, if you can read at the high-school level, or if you wonder about experimental psychology, then you'll find much of interest here.
Finally, Altemeyer is a character, once lying to his students that he was a homosexual to see if that would affect their responses to his survey on authoritarianism. In his Acknowledgements, he (jokingly) says that the reviewers of his manuscript "are responsible for all of the errors that you detect." He personally paid for nearly all the costs of his research, and scientific journal editors avoided publishing his findings. Yes, Altemeyer is a character!

Prof. Altemeyer measured the lowest scores for right-wing authoritarian (RWA) attitudes in 1973. From what I gather he attributes the rise of RWA throughout the late 1970's and 1980's to what? Certainly Left-wing anti-war violence, and street crime were as prevelant in the late 1960's and early 1970's (if not more so!) than in the '80's. Why were student attitudes less authoritarian in the early '70's when the conventional factors causing RWA were so prevelant? Especially since Altemeyer rejects as minimal the impact of parents and the media in shaping RWA attitudes. How could the excesses of the "student-left" and high crime rates of the '60's and early '70's effect student attitudes in the late '80's who were not yet out of diapers to "experience" the chaos? I have the same questions I had when I picked up the book? I give this book 5 stars mainly because the subject is so important.
