The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stevedore on the San Francisco docks in the 1940s, Eric Hoffer wrote philosophical treatises in his spare time while living in the railroad yards. The True Believer — the first and most famous of his books — was made into a bestseller when President Eisenhower cited it during one of the earliest television press conferences.Completely relevant and essential for understanding the world today, The True Believer is a visionary, highly provocative look into the mind of the fanatic and a penetrating study of how an individual becomes one.

Synopsis:

Discusses the appeal of mass movements, types of potential converts, factors promoting self-sacrifice, and good and bad mass movements. Reissue.
