Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

Informed by Erik Erikson's concept of the formation of ego identity, this book, which first appreared in 1961, is an analysis of the experiences of fifteen Chinese citizens and twenty-five Westerners who underwent "brainwashing" by the Communist Chinese government. Robert Lifton constructs these case histories through personal interviews and outlines a thematic pattern of death and rebirth, accompanied by feelings of guilt, that characterizes the process of "thought reform." In a new preface, Lifton addresses the implications of his model for the study of American religious cults.

Sobre o Autor

Robert Jay Lifton is lecturer on psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of Death in Life: Survivors of Hiroshima and The Nazi Doctors.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Religious totalism 24 de dezembro de 2013
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Growing up one of Jehovah's Witnesses, some of what Lifton describes in this book I have definitely seen and it really rang true for me. I think his idea of totalism, this internal drive that many (all?) humans have to give themselves over 100+% to something greater than themselves... it's very real and it is something that we should all be aware exists.

Interestingly, I actually found chapter 8 on "Apparent Resisters" to be the part of the book that was most illuminating in my quest to understand the religion I grew up with. I always asked myself, even when I was one, how could JW's be so resistant... how did they resist in concentration camps and gulags, refusing to compromise even a little? I feared that I could never have THAT kind of resolve. Lifton pointed out that those who best resisted the thought reform of the Chinese prison system were those who were most immune to the appeal of totalism, *because they already had a totalistic worldview of their own.* Therefore, the totalism that the communists tried to involve these resisters in was actually perceived as a threat to their already satisfied totalistic impulse, rather than a tempting means to fulfill it.

I'm very grateful to Robert Lifton for this wonderful analysis, this isn't just a book about "brainwashing" in communist China, it's a book about human nature. If you're curious about the more extreme and darker impulses of human nature, read it! And if your curious about high control religious groups, or especially if you are in the process of leaving one yourself, I highly suggest reading it along with his study on Aum Shinrikyo "Destroying the World to Save it".

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Prescient Warning We Need to Remember 3 de agosto de 2013
Por Gregory J. Jemsek, author - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
There is no higher praise I can offer Robert Jay Lifton than this: his 50 year old book which deconstructs the mechanisms of Chinese Communist "re-education" efforts remains, to this day, the "go to" book for anyone interested in persuasion, indoctrination, and thought control. That's an amazing achievement. Can anyone dismayed by the shallowness of contemporary sound bite culture, for instance, not benefit from understanding Lifton's analysis of how "loading the language" leads to the "language of non-thought"? Is our tepid response to the continual revelations about government invasiveness (and the ensuing power grab so evident in the non-accountable judgements conducted by FISA and the NSA) a reflection of Lifton's prescient claim that "doctrine over person" is central to the success of ideological totalism, be it implemented by authoritarian regimes or democratic ones? These and other conclusions by the author are not the arbitrary musings of an Ivy Tower theorist - they are the conclusions arrived at after years of painstaking research, conclusions supported by other groundbreaking research that followed - particular the experiments conducted by Stanley Milgram and Philip Zimbardo. This research is critical to digest if we're to avoid the prospects of the haunting warning issued by the author midway through this book: "For there is no emotional bondage greater than that of the man whose entire guilt potential - neurotic and existential - has become the property of ideological totalists." Any efforts to turn back the growing erosion of privacy, freedom, and sovereignty by corporations, governments and others will succeed unless we create a way to put into practice the wisdom Lifton articulates so clearly and powerfully in this book.

I first heard of this book during a Psychology 101 class I took in college nearly 40 years ago, and have always wanted to read it. This book is a classic psychological study of the techniques used to manipulate the ideological thoughts of captives in Communist China. Although originally published in 1961, Dr. Lifton's work is still invaluable to anyone who is a student of the subject, or as an adjunct of the Cold War. Highly recommended.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Still the formative work on thought reform 31 de março de 2015
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Still the formative work on thought reform. This should be required reading for every freshman college student and every conscientious citizen of the world. So much of the politico-religious movements occupying global headlines could be understood by reading this book. Human nature hasn't changed so the need for cautionary reminders will never diminish.
5.0 de 5 estrelas An Instructive Historical View 15 de julho de 2016

The review of actual cases provides detailed insight into re-education processes in the mid-20th Century in China. Commentary by the author interprets these processes from a psychoanalytic viewpoint. The author compares the thought reform processes to education and treatment.
