Stanley Milgram's experiments on obedience to authority are among the most important psychological studies of this century. Perhaps because of the enduring significance of the findings--the surprising ease with which ordinary persons can be commanded to act destructively against an innocent individual by a legitimate authority--it continues to claim the attention of psychologists and other social scientists, as well as the general public. The study continues to inspire valuable research and analysis. The goal of this book is to present current work inspired by the obedience paradigm.
This book demonstrates the vibrancy of the obedience paradigm by presenting some of its most important and stimulating contemporary uses and applications. Paralleling Milgram's own eclecticism in the content and style of his research and writing, the contributions comprise a potpourri of styles of research and presentation--ranging from personal narratives, through conceptual analyses, to randomized experiments.

...although seeming at the outset to be a book about the past, it is in fact very much about the present....it provides some excellent first-hand illustrative material for work in personal, social and moral education...[and] with student teachers in considering their future role with regard to their use of power and their expectations of obedience within educational settings.
—British Journal of Educational Psychology
Thomas Blass...probably has done more than anyone to keep Milgram's research a part of contemporary social psychology....Milgram's work still provides the best insight into one of the most important questions social psychologists have ever asked.
