This book presents a landmark theory that probes the psychological channels of dogmatism. This wide-angle theory has been sadly lacking until now. The author explores major influences that shape the personality trait of dogmatism using lively case studies to illustrate twelve of its characteristics. Strategies for minimising the effects of dogmatism in our lives as well as in out educational, political and social institutions are suggested. It is written in a clear engaging style that is professional yet accessible to a wide audience to provide enlightenment.
