Description - Hatred by Willard Gaylin

In Hatred, Dr. Willard Gaylin, one of America's most respected psychiatrists, describes how raw personal passions are transformed into acts of violence and cultures of hatred. Such hatred goes beyond mere emotion. Hatred, Gaylin explains, is a psychological disorder-a form of quasi-delusional thinking. It is designed to allow the angry and frustrated individual to disavow responsibility for his own failures and misery, by directing it towards a convenient victim. Gaylin dissects the mechanisms by which cynical political and religious leaders manipulate frustrated and deprived subject populations, leading to the acts of mass terror that threaten us all. The result is a brilliant analysis of the psychological pathway to acts of terrorism - an understanding that is essential to survival in a world filled with hate.
