OPENING SKINNER’S BOX
Great Psychological Experiments of the Twentieth Century
Presenting dramatically compelling narratives that really underline why these experiments were so important, Slater looks at Skinner and his box, Milgram and obedience to authority, Rosenhan and psychiatric diagnosis, Darley and Latane and group behavior in moments of crisis, Festinger and cognitive dissonance, Harlow’s monkeys, the "Rat Park" addiction study, Loftus and false memory, Kandel’s sea slugs, and Moniz and psychosurgery.
“Neither clinical nor dispassionate….This combination of expert scientific and historical context, tough-minded reporting and daringly subjective re-creation.”—Publishers Weekly
“Slater creates for the reader a sense of intimacy with scientists and their subjects.”—Psychology Today
