Myths and Politics in Western Societies: Evaluating the Crisis of Modernity in the United States, Germany, and Great Britain

Front Cover
Transaction Publishers, 1993 - History - 191 pages
"The inspirational character of myths is most evident in turbulent times. They enable people to come to terms with powerful economic and political forces. Girling shows that emotionally charged beliefs, often expressed in political myths, continue to play a powerful role in contemporary society. Myths and Politics in Western Society will be of interest to historians, political psychologists, sociologists, economists, and scholars of American, German, and British studies. The new concern with irrationality in leadership is given full play in this work."--BOOK JACKET.
