Free sample

In this clear and vivid book, Gustave Le Bon throws light on the
unconscious irrational workings of group thought and mass emotion as he
places crowd ideology in opposition to free-thinking and independent
minded individuals. He also shows how the behaviour of an individual
changes when she/he is part of a crowd.

Editing 

The orginal of this work, La
Psychologie des Foules, was first translated anonymously into English
possibly by a group of French students. Sparkling Books has corrected
errors and anomalies in the original translation by reference to the
Alcan edition. We have shortened a few passages but maintained the
original footnotes and have added some footnotes of our own.
