Meet the Author

Gustave Le Bon (1841 -1931) was a French social psychologist, sociologist, and amateur physicist. He was the author of several works in which he expounded theories of national traits, racial superiority, herd behavior and crowd psychology. His work on crowd psychology became important during the first half of the twentieth century when it was used by media researchers such as Hadley Cantril and Herbert Blumer to describe the reactions of subordinate groups to media.

After reading the book, i must say that the thought and idea of the crowd, still holds true today. Very logical arguments and the content flows. I recommend this bok to anyone who follows politics and current events. The general thesis is viable still today.
